KDDI Business ID is an enterprise cloud service that enables businesses to securely manage user IDs for SaaS products such as G Suite, Office 365, and Salesforce. KDDI needed a NoSQL database to ensure fast deployment times, and they chose Couchbase after considering several competitors. KDDI found Couchbase to be extremely flexible in accommodating their agile development style and multiple schemas. They were impressed by Couchbase’s strong balance of industry-leading performance and high reliability. And with Couchbase’s push-button scalability, KDDI can easily add servers with no downtime.

“The most important quality of a telecommunications company … is reliability in providing services. With Couchbase we can meet our customers’ expectations.”
