Comments: Faster access to data, that what we are solving with this product. As its schema less, we are not having any overhead for deploying this to any lower environment and production server. And we can focus more on solving business problem.

Pros: Most powerful feature of Couchbase of its purpose. Its NoSql and Schema less data store. Recently we experienced the powerful feature is its Disaster Recovery Strategy. Its really amazing that it has inbuilt support of that.

Cons: Indexes. That really causing troubles for us. Complex query are taking hugh amount of time and requires to have indexes of for all kind of JSON document we are storing.

simple and effective noSQL

Pros: couchbase is a very nimble and much faster in performance than its competitors and is also supported with a mobile version in addtion to a traditional server

Cons: many a time it goes crazy when a change is made to inter-connected buckets and the system fails to recognize this and also found data manipulation language not to work

Pros: The synch protocol, that allows you to work offline and synch when you came back online. The support for Android is another big feature I like.

Cons: The complexity in making it works. You need too study the doc and principles around the software before you start to see the benefits you can gain from it.
