Couchbase vs Hazelcast: 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 Hazelcast? Clustering and highly scalable data distribution platform for Java. With its various distributed data structures, distributed caching capabilities, elastic nature, memcache support, integration with Spring and Hibernate and more importantly with so many happy users, Hazelcast is feature-rich, enterprise-ready and developer-friendly in-memory data grid solution.

Couchbase belongs to "Databases" category of the tech stack, while Hazelcast can be primarily classified under "In-Memory Databases".

Some of the features offered by Couchbase are:

  • JSON document database
  • N1QL (SQL-like query language)
  • Secondary Indexing

On the other hand, Hazelcast provides the following key features:

  • Distributed implementations of java.util.{Queue, Set, List, Map}
  • Distributed implementation of java.util.concurrent.locks.Lock
  • Distributed implementation of java.util.concurrent.ExecutorService

"Flexible data model, easy scalability, extremely fast" is the top reason why over 13 developers like Couchbase, while over 4 developers mention "High Availibility" as the leading cause for choosing Hazelcast.

Hazelcast is an open source tool with 3.15K GitHub stars and 1.15K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Hazelcast's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Couchbase has a broader approval, being mentioned in 45 company stacks & 20 developers stacks; compared to Hazelcast, which is listed in 25 company stacks and 15 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Couchbase and Hazelcast?
      MongoDB
      MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
      CouchDB
      Apache CouchDB is a database that uses JSON for documents, JavaScript for MapReduce indexes, and regular HTTP for its API. CouchDB is a database that completely embraces the web. Store your data with JSON documents. Access your documents and query your indexes with your web browser, via HTTP. Index, combine, and transform your documents with JavaScript.
      Cassandra
      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.
      Redis
      Redis is an open source, BSD licensed, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets.
      HBase
      Apache HBase is an open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store modeled after Google' Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data by Chang et al. Just as Bigtable leverages the distributed data storage provided by the Google File System, HBase provides Bigtable-like capabilities on top of Apache Hadoop.

      HazelCast is the foundation for the distributed system that hosts our APIs and intelligent workflows. We wrap the core HazelCast functions in Clojure protocols to implement micro-services on top of a coherent, single-process instance per virtual node.

      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.
