How Couchbase database different from Elasticsearch

Hello there,

I am new in Couchbase.
How Couchbase database different from Elasticsearch when both are document oriented, support full text search, replication and scalable.

please tell.


Hi @Singh,

Elastic search is built-from-by-for only search. Underlying technology is Apache Lucene.

Couchbase is a full-fledged NoSQL database, means scalable, highly available with built-in replication.
It has key-value, declarative query language (N1QL) and high performance indexes (GSI), text search (FTS), eventing and analytics built into a single platform.

I haven’t seen a detailed comparison between Couchbase and Elastic.
Since you’re interested in search, I recently did a comparison of text search features in Couchbase and MongoDb.

Thanks @keshav_m for your answer.

It has been 5 years now since the reply.

It will be nice to shed some more lights between these 2 products, when does couchbase shines compared to ElasticSearch as in 2023. When can they be used together ?
