About KDDI and Couchbase
KDDI Business ID is an enterprise cloud service for businesses who want to securely manage user IDs for SaaS products such as G Suite, Office 365, and Salesforce. Fast and flexible deployment was a top priority for KDDI, so they knew from the start they wanted to have a NoSQL database rather than an RDBMS. After considering several candidates, KDDI chose Couchbase for a number of reasons. For starters, they found Couchbase to be extremely flexible in accommodating their agile development style, and in its ability to store both JSON and binary data. Next, they were impressed by Couchbase’s strong balance of industry-leading performance and high reliability. KDDI also has to provide its customers with uninterrupted service along with easy and unlimited scalability, and Couchbase makes it simple by providing push-button scalability that adds a server to a cluster with no downtime. Another key requirement for KDDI is high availability (especially for disaster recovery), and Couchbase’s cross datacenter replication (XDCR) makes it simple to achieve. With ease of operation for everything from deployment to recovery, Couchbase makes cloud services fast, secure, and reliable for KDDI and its customers.
