About Shop.com and Couchbase
As a business that caters to the most demanding online shoppers, Shop.com needs to know that its website always delivers a flawless experience and its apps work without a hitch even when mobile users lose their connection. After carefully considering its options, Shop.com chose Couchbase for its memory-first database that delivers simplicity along with high performance and scalability. What really sealed the deal was Couchbase Lite, which is Couchbase’s embedded JSON database, along with Sync Gateway, which syncs mobile devices with data centers. Couchbase Mobile not only provides the dependable offline mobile solution Shop.com was looking for, it also allows the company to develop new functionality quickly without having to build full-fledged APIs.
Being a memory-first database, the simplicity, performance, and scalability that Couchbase offers were all factors [in choosing Couchbase]. However, the biggest of those has to be Couchbase Lite and Sync Gateway.Aaron Benton Senior Applications Architect, Shop.com
