eBay

As one of the world’s most popular e-commerce companies, eBay runs over 4,000 database servers to support 18 million sellers and 164 million active users worldwide. eBay has always been a heavy Oracle user, but over time realized Oracle was not the best fit for a lot of its use cases. Quite often, eBay was paying Oracle too much for features it didn’t need, while not getting all the features it did need. As a result, eBay switched a significant portion of its workload to NoSQL, and now uses Couchbase as a combination of key-value store and document database. Couchbase gives eBay the affordable scalability it needs along with very high read/write performance and throughput. A common use case is caching in front of Oracle in order to scale out applications without adding more Oracle. eBay found an unexpected bonus in N1QL (Couchbase’s SQL-like language for JSON), which allows developers to easily adapt their relational database skills to NoSQL. Last year, eBay doubled its number of Couchbase use cases and increased its number of Couchbase nodes 5x while handling 80 billion Couchbase calls per day.

BD

As a leading medical technology company, BD is constantly looking for new ways to improve diagnostics and the delivery of health care. In the case of Type 2 diabetes, a major obstacle to optimized treatment has been the lack of individualized data. It’s too difficult for patients to collect the data, and even when they do, doctors don’t have the time to sort through it all. BD’s innovative solution is a mobile patient app and clinician portal built on Couchbase and Couchbase Mobile. The solution uses connected medical devices and a mobile app to automatically log real-time data on a patient’s insulin and glucose levels, activities, meals, and location. Based on the data, the mobile app provides patients with customized alerts and recommendations. The clinician portal collects all the data and presents it to doctors in an efficient format for making diagnoses and determining the best course of treatment. Couchbase provides the offline capabilities of the patient application and secure synchronization of patient data from the medical IoT devices to the cloud. BD chose Couchbase because Couchbase made it extremely easy to launch the app and portal and to add rules over time as the solution evolved.

Super Evil Megacorp

Super Evil Megacorp has the simple, yet ambitious goal of providing the best online and mobile gaming experience in the world. Couchbase became an essential part of that quest when Super Evil Megacorp’s previous platform reached maximum capacity. If any game experiences lag or downtime, it can be disastrous because players are notoriously quick to jump to the competition when games falter. This became a real risk for Super Evil Megacorp because their platform was extremely difficult to scale. Couchbase proved to be the perfect solution. It not only delivered sub-millisecond latency while getting back more data than the previous platform, but it also enabled Super Evil Megacorp to migrate their game modules and player accounts without any downtime. Now, using Couchbase’s Multi-Dimensional Scaling, the company can flexibly grow its architecture however and whenever it needs to. Because they can now use commodity hardware, the company expects to cut its database costs by 60%-70%. And because their core team can now spend more time on innovation instead of managing crises, they’re a giant step closer to revolutionizing the gaming industry.

Betfair

Betfair, one of the world’s largest international online sports betting providers uses transactional data and operational monitoring in a smattering of applications that serve over 30,000 markets. Historically, their applications have run on Oracle, which they felt was reliable and well known, but had a few issues including impedance mismatch with object-oriented languages and scaling, among others. The company turned to NoSQL for its scalability, fast lookups, integration with continuous delivery, and ultimately, reduced time to delivery. Teams throughout the company began using a multitude of different NoSQL databases including MongoDB, Cassandra, HBase, CouchDB, Redis, and Memcached. In 2013, the company began to question whether the NoSQL solutions they had chosen were the optimal fit for the applications they were being deployed for. They started their investigation by evaluating all NoSQL solutions, adding Couchbase into the mix, and discovered that Cassandra was one of the solutions that was not a good fit for their use case. Couchbase replaced Cassandra in this instance and in their Memcached instance because Couchbase was fast, deterministic, avoided cold cache, and was considered a far better option than their current solution. Couchbase is now Betfair’s strategic document NoSQL solution and processes 30,000 bets per minute, across 140 countries from more than 4 million funded user accounts.

Cars.com

The mission of Cars.com is to be the leading decision engine that moves people through the car ownership cycle with transparent, fun, and engaging experiences. As the expectations of customers continued to rise, the company realized it needed a better database to manage its data assets, flexibly evolve them for new use cases, quickly serve them to consumers, and easily ingest massive amounts of new data on a regular basis. After a rigorous vendor selection process that included demos, proof-of-concepts, and proposals from five solutions providers, Cars.com selected Couchbase in late 2015 and delivered its first projects into production in 2016. Its first use cases were data-rich vehicle listings for an ever-changing inventory of 5 million vehicles, extremely flexible user profiles, and product data and metrics for both internal and consumer use. One of the reasons Cars.com chose Couchbase was for the ability to quickly release new products, and Couchbase passed that test almost immediately when Cars.com successfully capitalized on an unexpected opportunity to develop a cutting-edge vehicle pricing application. Cars.com also likes that Couchbase is fully aligned with its cloud and SOA strategies and will enable the company to continually exceed customer expectations with more new products in the years to come.

Amadeus

Today’s travel industry is experiencing rapid growth, high customer expectations, fierce competition, and pressure on margins. Amadeus, the leading Global Distribution System (GDS) and the largest processor of travel bookings in the world, looked to NoSQL and Couchbase – shifting away from Oracle – to meet stringent data management needs within a demanding industry. In 2008, Amadeus implemented Memcached on a MySQL database. By 2013, Amadeus leveraged Couchbase Server for two applications: Amadeus Selling Platform Connect, a website for professional travel agents such as Thomson and Expedia, and the global booking engine, Availability Processing Engine. The company made the complete shift to Couchbase in 2014 and had 800 million passengers travel with flights arranged by Amadeus in 2015. By adopting NoSQL, Amadeus was able to maintain its key/value store architecture, while pushing the complexity of data distribution down into the database level. Today, Amadeus uses Couchbase in seven applications which are able to process petabytes of data in upwards of 2.5 million operations per second.

KDDI

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.
