Couchbase was recognized in the report for providing “ease of use for document-oriented databases… Customers (such as AT&T, eBay, LinkedIn, McGraw Hill Education, Orbitz, and Tesco)… use the product to support various mission-critical workloads, including operational, analytical, and mixed workloads.”
