How to Choose a Database for Your Mobile Apps

Today’s consumers rely on their mobile apps no matter where they are. If your apps are sluggish and slow or don’t work at all when there’s no internet connection, your customers will start looking for other apps that work all the time. To help you provide the always-on experience customers demand, database solutions like Couchbase Mobile have added synchronization and offline capabilities to their mobile database offerings.

 

This white paper helps you choose the best mobile database for your needs based on 6 key evaluation questions:

 

  • Does it have support for the right platforms?
  • Is data secure at rest and in motion?
  • Do you have a flexible data model?
  • How does your database handle pesky conflicts?
  • Does your database sync at the right times?
  • Does your database sync using the right topology?

We also help you answer one last critical question: Should you build or should you buy? Get your white paper now for the answers you need.

NoSQL Performance Benchmark 2018, Altoros, 2018

In this report, Altoros evaluates and compares the latency and throughput of the three most popular NoSQL databases – Couchbase Server, MongoDB™, and DataStax Enterprise (Cassandra) – under different cluster configurations and workloads using the Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB).

 

The evaluation was conducted on different cluster configurations of 4, 10, and 20 nodes under four different workloads. The four workloads tested were an update-heavy workload, a short-range scan workload, a query with filter including an offset and limit, and a JOIN query with grouping and ordering. You’ll see exactly how Couchbase consistently outperformed the competition across configurations and workloads.

Couchbase vs. MongoDB™ for Scale-Out and High Availability

Couchbase is a distributed NoSQL document-oriented database with a core architecture that supports a flexible data model, easy scalability, consistent high performance, always-on 24/365 characteristics, and advanced security. Many enterprises have chosen Couchbase over the popular MongoDB™ after rigorously evaluating both NoSQL databases side by side.

 

In this paper, we’ll focus on how Couchbase compares to MongoDB™ for scalability and high availability. More specifically, we’ll discuss: The ability to scale enterprise applications easily, efficiently, and reliably. Scaling single services instead of the entire database. Avoiding downtime and maintaining high availability 24/7 with replication, automatic failover, and online operations.

Couchbase vs. MongoDB™ for Query

This whitepaper explores how the popular NoSQL databases Couchbase and MongoDB™ differ significantly in their approach to query. Among many key differences, you’ll learn why:

 

  • Couchbase provides the power and familiarity of SQL, while MongoDB requires developers to learn a proprietary language

  • MongoDB puts the burden of optimizing queries on the developer while Couchbase’s declarative language shifts the burden to the database

  • MongoDB’s complex query language can’t match Couchbase’s strong support for ANSI join constructs and advanced query optimization

Developing High Availability Applications

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.
