Cisco

One of Cisco’s many industry solutions is VSRM (a video session and resource manager application), which cable companies use to enable their broadcast, on-demand, and DVR video services. Cisco’s VSRM platform supports 100+ billion user sessions per year for cable companies all around the world. The VSRM product was always very successful, but over time it became increasingly complex to scale, and customers also struggled with the failure rates of their legacy hardware. Cisco decided it was time to move the VSRM platform to NoSQL in the cloud to achieve the scalability it needed and the efficiency, reliability, and performance its customers demanded. After assessing numerous databases, including Cassandra and MongoDB, Cisco chose Couchbase for three primary reasons: It provides very strong data consistency that is comparable to a standalone system. It delivers reliable low latency, with consistent 500 microsecond response times at very large scale. And it provides great scalability in a distributed system. Cisco was also pleased to discover that Couchbase is “like a Swiss army knife,” for its clusters, giving the company a single tool to easily manage and maintain many aspects of its database.

Cvent

With online event planning as its primary business, Cvent is constantly building new services for its customers. Over the years, the company’s product grew into a monolithic application that was increasingly difficult to scale. To overcome that obstacle, Cvent started delivering its product as hundreds of individual, but integrated, microservices — and they found Couchbase to be the ideal database to provide the performance, scalability, and flexibility this change required. A driving force behind the selection of Couchbase is its compatibility with Memcached, which allows Cvent to naturally transition its storage to Couchbase over time. For Cvent developers, the transition was just as easy. Because they were already using SQL, they were able to switch to N1QL without missing a beat — and they gained the ability to define their own data with schemaless data modeling, and create their own queries using multiple indexing options. Now, Cvent uses Couchbase across 8 development clusters and 45 teams to develop and run hundreds of microservices.

Sky

As Europe’s leading entertainment provider, Sky has to stay a step ahead of constant technology challenges like streaming content, which put ever-increasing demands on their database. Frustrated with the scalability and performance limitations of their legacy Oracle RDBMS, Sky knew it was time to begin the transition to NoSQL and Couchbase when their data center reached capacity. They started by moving their identity platform, which provides full sign-up and sign-in functionality for all Sky’s online products. As part of their transformation, Sky embraced the use of distributed databases to cope with growing demand and spiky traffic patterns. Couchbase’s cross datacenter replication (XDCR) worked flawlessly for the data transfer to multiple data centers. In fact XDCR worked so well that Sky decided to use it to migrate all their data stores to Couchbase. The moves reduced sign-in response time by 50% and had huge implications for disaster recovery, dropping the recovery time from hours to minutes. Sky is now actively growing the Couchbase community within their company and looking for more ways to switch from Oracle to Couchbase.

Tommy Hilfiger

In 2015 Tommy Hilfiger revolutionized the buying journey for its wholesale customers by pioneering the industry’s first digital showroom in Amsterdam. In this showroom, buyers could browse fashions for the upcoming season on oversized ultra-high definition screens along with product details, pricing, buying history, delivery dates, and more. The company chose the Couchbase Data platform to power the system because they needed the entire showroom experience to be as high-end as the fashions being showcased. With Couchbase, Tommy Hilfiger knew they would get industry-leading performance and scalability, offline availability, and near real-time data synchronization for a smooth and immersive experience that was always up-to-date and worked flawlessly even if the internet went down. Today the brand has Couchbase-powered digital showrooms in 13 countries totaling 24 theaters and 59 workstations, and plans to expand to over 25 locations worldwide by the end of 2018. Thanks to the incredible efficiency of theses digital showrooms, the company has cut its sample production by 80% at its European headquarters and is on track to do the same around the globe.

Doddle

Doddle makes it easier to shop online by providing online customers from any retailer with convenient places like train stations, universities, and stores to pick up or return their packages. Doddle’s original database solution was expensive and hard to deploy – but even worse was the fact that Doddle struggled to provide quality network connections into their 80+ locations in the U.K. Doddle decided to go mobile for more reliable service, but even then access was spotty at peak business times when customers saturated the network with their mobile devices. Couchbase Mobile was the perfect solution because it was more affordable, easier to deploy, and its embedded database (Couchbase Lite) stores data locally, which keeps Doddle’s apps working for their customers and employees even when they go offline. The channels feature in Sync Gateway also allows Doddle to easily regulate what data individual employees can access, which gives them great flexibility to move employees and their mobile devices from store to store. The company started developing on Couchbase in April of 2016, went live in less than three months, and plans on rolling out hundreds of new stores on Couchbase in 2017.

Viber

Viber switched to Couchbase from MongoDB/Redis deployment, halving the number of server and increasing throughput to support skyrocketing demand.

Viber

In late 2013, Viber, a fast-growing messaging platform, was pushed to scale at a rate their backend could no longer support. At the time, the company had deployed 300 nodes – mostly composed of NoSQL competitor MongoDB, in combination with Redis – to address their scaling issues. In 2014, Viber announced its switch to Couchbase given the massive growth and scale the platform was attaining. The company was drawn to Couchbase by its easy and transparent sharding and scaling model, ability to provide higher throughput, and reduced number of nodes required. Couchbase’s unique consolidation of caching and database tiers made the technology especially appealing to Viber. Today Viber continues to use Couchbase to serve 12% of the world’s mobile devices with always-available messaging.

Verizon

In 2015, the global communications company Verizon launched ThingSpace, an innovative IoT development platform for its enterprise customers. To enable the real-time dashboards, reports, notifications, alerts, and other capabilities its customers require, Verizon needs a highly available environment that never goes down. Verizon also has to scale the solution to support the exponential growth of IoT devices in the system, along with the unique data and reporting required for each customer. Verizon’s legacy RDBMS simply couldn’t meet the challenge – its response times were slow and unpredictable, stored procedure optimization was overly complex, and time-to-market for new features was too long. Couchbase met every requirement with predictable performance, horizontal scalability, and a flexible data model that makes it easy to add new functionality on a continuous basis. Couchbase’s cross datacenter (XDCR) functionality also makes it easy for Verizon to connect two active-active data centers for high availability. Today, Verizon uses Couchbase clusters to sustain 3.5 million operations per second.

Nuance

See how Nuance made the shift from Oracle to NoSQL – and how Couchbase won out between the top three NoSQL databases.

Read Full Description

Nuance

In 2013, Varolii, a Nuance Communications company, began evaluating backend solutions for its automated notifications product geared toward enterprises. For the previous 10 years, the company deployed an all-Oracle environment, but found that the monolithic platforms were difficult to manage from an engineering perspective. Varolii mobilized MongoDB for a small project which worked for the initial size and scope; however, efforts to expand to a second data center posed challenges with bidirectional replication issues. Upon review, Varolii identified must-have requirements including multi-master database replication, horizontal scaling, open source, and VM support. They evaluated Cassandra and Couchbase which were closely aligned, yet Couchbase outperformed Cassandra in ease of use. Further, Cassandra didn't provide the document database aspect they wanted to leverage in addition to key-value capability, and querying was also much more involved. Today, Nuance leverages Couchbase in their Varolii solution and uses the Hadoop integration to connect SQL-based analysis to the world of unstructured data.
