Couchbase vs Event Store: What are the differences?
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.
What is Event Store? *The open-source, functional database with Complex Event Processing *. It stores your data as a series of immutable events over time, making it easy to build event-sourced applications. It can run as a cluster of nodes containing the same data, which remains available for writes provided at least half the nodes are alive and connected.
Couchbase and Event Store can be primarily classified 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, Event Store provides the following key features:
- Functional Database
- Event-sourced applications
- Stores data

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.
