CenterEdge replaced SQL Server to a Couchbase cluster in the cloud

Need more proof? CenterEdge is a leading provider of management solutions for the amusement, entertainment, and FEC industries. They began their migration to NoSQL in 2012, when their SQL Server system crashed on Black Friday. Today they are running all of their customer-facing applications on a multi-node Couchbase cluster that uses fewer servers, with complete reliability and better performance.

Listen to real-world experiences and practical lessons learned from Brant Burnett, Application Development Team Lead as part of a presentation from Couchbase Connect 2016.

Top 5 reasons companies choose NoSQL with Couchbase

Easier to scale
Arrow

Easier to scale

Whether running on 3 nodes or hundreds – in 1 data center or many – Couchbase Server is based on a distributed architecture to scale on commodity hardware with ease, regardless of the operating system.

Better performance
Arrow

Better performance

Couchbase Server features an integrated cache, memory-optimized indexes, and memory-to-memory replication to deliver consistent, high throughput with sub-millisecond response times, at any scale.

Up to 40x lower cost
Arrow

Up to 40x lower cost

With subscriptions based on the number of instances, Couchbase Server typically costs 5-40x less than SQL Server and its per-core based licensing – especially on servers with many cores.

Cross-platform
Arrow

Cross-platform

Couchbase Server can be deployed on Windows or Linux (Red Hat, Ubuntu, Debian, and more), simplifying deployment and administration by decoupling the database from the operating system.

Greater agility
