Couchbase vs Oracle: 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, Oracle is detailed as "An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism". Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.
Couchbase and Oracle belong to "Databases" category of the tech stack.
"Flexible data model, easy scalability, extremely fast" is the primary reason why developers consider Couchbase over the competitors, whereas "Reliable" was stated as the key factor in picking Oracle.
Netflix, ebay, and LinkedIn are some of the popular companies that use Oracle, whereas Couchbase is used by RecordSetter, Musixmatch, and Crowdpark. Oracle has a broader approval, being mentioned in 106 company stacks & 92 developers stacks; compared to Couchbase, which is listed in 45 company stacks and 21 developer stacks.
