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.
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.
Multinational telecommunications company BT has operations in 180 countries and over 1.5 million subscribers.

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.
CenterEdge, a POS product provider for 500 global customers in the entertainment industry, began their NoSQL journey in 2012, when their SQL system crashed on Black Friday. After the load spike meltdown, the team determined that a cloud migration was the next step in their journey. They started by using Couchbase Server to address traffic upsurges — first as a cache and then moving into persistent storage and finally out of SQL altogether. By 2015, CenterEdge had become a beta customer for the latest version of Couchbase and have been at the forefront of N1QL users making operations and development easy in practice and transition. Today, CenterEdge relies on Couchbase for best-in-class analytics in a matter of milliseconds and is in the process of moving completely over to Couchbase from SQL.
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.
Comcast, a leading provider of video, high-speed internet and voice services with nearly 30 million customers, uses Couchbase to deliver better customer support across multiple lines of business. A key part of Comcast’s business model is to provide a customer experience that is always improving. Achieving that goal is complicated because customers interact with Comcast in many different ways – and capturing all those interactions to build a single view of each customer had become a serious challenge with relational technologies. With Couchbase, Comcast presents a complete picture of each customer’s account and status when support receives a call, resulting in better, faster service for the company’s customers.
Concur implemented a large Couchbase Server cluster, utilizing the Enyim (.NET) client for the web tier and the spymemcached (Java) client for the middle tier. They were impressed with the simplicity with which they could set up, configure, and scale the cluster. For example, the ability to use a single solution across multiple tiers and languages was a huge win for Concur and made Couchbase a more attractive option than other solutions, which required different implementations for each. Using the recommended reverse proxy setup, there’s just a single IP address for configuring REST connections and monitoring across multiple tiers. Couchbase's cluster management capabilities give Concur the ability to scale out their cluster with zero downtime. They also get the added benefit of zero configuration management when adding or removing nodes from their cluster because both the .NET and Java clients are automatically updated when there is a topology change, ensuring smooth and consistent growth of the Couchbase cluster across the entire environment.
HomeNet Automotive, a division of Cox Automotive, is a leading provider of online inventory management and marketing solutions for car dealers. HomeNet deployed Couchbase because the company needed to scale beyond the 6 million cars it was originally designed for and be able to process anywhere from 50 to 100 million vehicles a day. While the company uses SQL Server hardware, they rely on the speed, flexibility, and dependability of Couchbase to help meet the high-throughput, non-transactional, data requirements. The company first brought in NoSQL as a way to offload operations to Couchbase as a cache and has since made Couchbase the system of record.

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.
Doddle was founded to provide online shoppers with convenient places to pick up and return their packages. Doddle’s original database solution was expensive and hard to deploy – but even worse, it performed poorly when network connections were spotty. Couchbase Mobile was affordable, easier to deploy, and its embedded database (Couchbase Lite) kept Doddle’s apps working even when they went offline. Today, Doddle uses the same Couchbase technology to provide retailers with white-label solutions for click and collect, ship-from store, and returns.
In the U.S., the financial data company Equifax is best known for providing credit scores used by lenders to make consumer loans. When the Federal National Mortgage Association announced major changes in their credit score requirements, Equifax had to act fast. The company decided to switch to a NoSQL database to get the high performance and scalability needed to provide 5-millisecond response times in a system handling 1.5 billion constantly changing records. After evaluating Couchbase against MongoDB and Redis, Equifax decided Couchbase was the clear winner. The most important differentiator was Couchbase’s Multi-Dimensional Scaling, which Equifax uses to scale individual workloads separately. Equifax was also able to quickly and easily implement disaster recovery using Couchbase’s cross datacenter replication (XDCR) and master-master replication scheme. The operations team was sold on the power of the Memcached protocol and RESTful API for system monitoring and management. Developers liked the simplicity and flexibility of N1QL, Couchbase’s SQL-based query language for JSON. By replacing Hadoop with RxJava, the development team was able to process 300+ million documents in 40 minutes. Couchbase’s technical support team sealed the deal by partnering closely with Equifax during the intense 24/7 production cycle in the months prior to launch.
Powered by Couchbase, FICO’s fraud detection platform is #1 in the world and scores 65% of the world’s credit/debit cards. Downtime means fraud and lost revenue for the company, so when FICO was chosen to provide credit checks, fraud screening, and targeted offers for new telecommunications customers both in-store and online, it needed a NoSQL database that could deliver high availability alongside high transactional volume. Couchbase was chosen over Cassandra and MongoDB for speed, scalability, availability, and persistence to support large XML objects.
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.

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.

Analysis of Database Query Languages in MySQL, Couchbase Server, and MongoDB (Altoros)
NoSQL Document databases are challenging conventional RDBMS thinking with regard to scale, flexibility and performance. The question remains, do their query languages address the needs of developers as well or better than tried and true SQL? This report takes the query language challenge to Couchbase and MongoDB using MySQL as the reference baseline.
This report from independent firm, Alteros, uses 7 different criteria to evaluate Couchbase N1QL and MongoDB Query against MySQL’s SQL. The criteria scores each language according to how simple, readable, expressive, and flexible they are, and then whether skilled resources are readily available; how many lines of code must be written per query, and finally, when the query runs, how many application-to-database trips must be made before it completes. The article concludes by recognizing that declarative languages are preferred over procedural ones, which in turn helps limit performance drains during execution, and that familiarity with SQL, especially including unambiguous support for JOINs, makes the utility of N1QL stand out above MongoDB.
