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 24x365 characteristics, and advanced security. It has been adopted across multiple industries and in the largest enterprises for their most business-critical applications. Many of those customers, including cars.com, DirecTV, and Staples, have gone through rigorous evaluations of Couchbase alongside MongoDB, and have chosen Couchbase based on a strong set of differentiated capabilities and architectural advantages, including:
In this paper, we will focus on how MongoDB compares to Couchbase when it comes to global deployment. Couchbase Server provides support for both intra-cluster replication and cross datacenter replication (XDCR), providing an easy way to replicate data from one cluster to another for disaster recovery as well as better data locality (getting data closer to its users).
