LinkedIn - Seamlessly growing the world’s largest professional network

LinkedIn is the world’s largest online professional network with 645+ million members. After outgrowing Oracle and then Memcached, LinkedIn chose Couchbase over MongoDB™ and Redis to be the caching solution for its source-of-truth (SoT) data store. Thanks to its ease of use and extremely low latency, Couchbase quickly became popular with site reliability engineers across the organization. Today, LinkedIn has a Caching as a Service team that uses Couchbase to support over 50 use cases companywide.
