The NoSQL Database Revolution

Couchbase and MongoDB are the two popular names in the list of NoSQL databases for any developer or business. Each has its own distinct features which make them loved among the developer’s community.

Couchbase Server is an open-source, document-oriented NoSQL database (DB). It is widely chosen for use in developing and deploying web, mobile and IoT applications in the industry. Its customer base includes pioneers in the industry like Cisco, AOL and so on.

MongoDB is again the next generation DB used to develop top-notch applications for large enterprises including web, mobile and IoT. The industry leaders like Adobe, Bosch etc use MongoDB for their applications.

So, if they are as good as the customer base suggests then what essentially differentiates both the DB’s? Here is a consolidated list of some essential features to solve the dilemma.

1.    Installation & configuration

Couchbase has an integrated admin console and configures everything in a single place. Whereas, Mongo DB follows the master-slave principle and has many moving parts requiring manual configuration.

2.    Structure & format

In Couchbase, the data is written in multiple data files in an append-only manner. These data files are further organized as B-trees. To prevent data from exhausting the disk space, Couchbase periodically cleans up stale data from its storage. On the other hand, Mongo DB stores data into collections of Binary-encoded JavaScript Object Notation or BJSON documents.

3.    Memory

Couchbase uses one of the high-performance caches in the industry, the Memcached protocol and eliminates the need for any external cache. MongoDB requires the use of third-party caches to handle increased users and scalability.

4.    Maintenance

In Couchbase, all the maintenance tasks can be performed using tools like Web UI, Command-line Interface (CLI) or REST API. While for Mongo DB, it can support only CLI tools for maintenance. And sometimes, third-party UI tools can also be used for this purpose.

5.    Supported programming languages
