Moving from Relational to NoSQL

Moving from Relational to NoSQL

Why use NoSQL? Innovative companies like AT&T, GE, and PayPal have successfully transitioned from relational to NoSQL for their critical web, mobile, and IoT applications. By understanding where to introduce NoSQL, how to model and access the data, and how to manage and monitor a distributed database, you can do the same. This white paper explains the need for non-relational databases, describes advantages of NoSQL, and clarifies the important difference between SQL and NoSQL databases.

Accelerating Data-Driven Applications with Couchbase and Spark

Accelerating Data-Driven Applications with Couchbase and Spark

Apache Spark is the leading in-memory analytics processing engine. Couchbase Server is the leading memory-first architectured NoSQL database. Combining these two best-of-breed technologies enables your business to execute real-time analytics for instantly actionable operational insights. 

Read this white paper to find out:

 

  • How Couchbase provides Spark users with the lowest latency, highest throughput, most reliable NoSQL data source and target 
  • How Spark enables Couchbase users with rich, scalable analytics for their operational applications
  • How to move data between Couchbase and Spark using RDDs, DataFrames, Datasets, and DStreams

Developing Applications with Cross Data Center Replication (XDCR)

Developing Applications with Cross Data Center Replication (XDCR)

Mission critical applications need a database that is always on. While intra-cluster replication helps with server failures giving you high availability, your system still remains at risk from catastrophic failures. You may also need a way to improve the response time for users when they are globally distributed by replicating information closer to them. 

Couchbase for Gaming

Couchbase for Gaming

Unlike traditional relational databases, Couchbase Server, a NoSQL database, provides easy scalability, consistent high performance, always-on 24x365 operations, and a flexible data model. Couchbase powers some of the most popular social and mobile games from companies like Zynga, EA, Tencent, Shuffle Master and many others. In this whitepaper, we’ll explore the database capabilities that have made Couchbase Server the preferred database for social and mobile games.
