Couchbase vs CrateIO: What are the differences?
Developers describe Couchbase as "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. On the other hand, CrateIO is detailed as "The Distributed Database for Docker". Crate is a distributed data store. Simply install Crate directly on your application servers and make the big centralized database a thing of the past. Crate takes care of synchronization, sharding, scaling, and replication even for mammoth data sets.
Couchbase and CrateIO can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
Some of the features offered by Couchbase are:
- JSON document database
- N1QL (SQL-like query language)
- Secondary Indexing
On the other hand, CrateIO provides the following key features:
- Familiar SQL syntax
- Semi-structured data
- High availability, resiliency, and scalability in a distributed design
"Flexible data model, easy scalability, extremely fast" is the primary reason why developers consider Couchbase over the competitors, whereas "Simplicity" was stated as the key factor in picking CrateIO.
CrateIO is an open source tool with 2.49K GitHub stars and 333 GitHub forks. Here's a link to CrateIO's open source repository on GitHub.

We use Couchbase heavily in our PowerStandings platform to enable real-time analytics of agent data, as well as data storage for parts of our new Playbooks product.
Main data storage. Any writes to Couchbase auto-replicate to Elasticsearch (via XDRC) and from there on propagate into the internal Jezebel pipeline via opes.
