Cassandra vs Couchbase: What are the differences?
What is Cassandra? A partitioned row store. Rows are organized into tables with a required primary key. Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
What is Couchbase? Document-Oriented NoSQL Database. Developed as an alternative to traditionally inflexible SQL databases, the Couchbase NoSQL database is built on an open source foundation and architected to help developers solve real-world problems and meet high scalability demands.
Cassandra and Couchbase belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.
"Distributed" is the top reason why over 96 developers like Cassandra, while over 13 developers mention "Flexible data model, easy scalability, extremely fast" as the leading cause for choosing Couchbase.
Cassandra is an open source tool with 5.27K GitHub stars and 2.35K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Cassandra's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Cassandra has a broader approval, being mentioned in 342 company stacks & 239 developers stacks; compared to Couchbase, which is listed in 45 company stacks and 21 developer stacks.
