Couchbase vs RabbitMQ: What are the differences?

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; RabbitMQ: A messaging broker - an intermediary for messaging. RabbitMQ gives your applications a common platform to send and receive messages, and your messages a safe place to live until received.

Couchbase and RabbitMQ are primarily classified as "Databases" and "Message Queue" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Couchbase are:

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

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

  • Robust messaging for applications
  • Easy to use
  • Runs on all major operating systems

"Flexible data model, easy scalability, extremely fast" is the top reason why over 13 developers like Couchbase, while over 203 developers mention "It's fast and it works with good metrics/monitoring" as the leading cause for choosing RabbitMQ.

RabbitMQ is an open source tool with 5.95K GitHub stars and 1.78K GitHub forks. Here's a link to RabbitMQ's open source repository on GitHub.

reddit, 9GAG, and Rainist are some of the popular companies that use RabbitMQ, whereas Couchbase is used by Geefu, Vestiaire Collective, and Dropsource. RabbitMQ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 940 company stacks & 548 developers stacks; compared to Couchbase, which is listed in 45 company stacks and 21 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Couchbase and RabbitMQ?
    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.

    Reviews of Couchbase and RabbitMQ
    Review ofRabbitMQRabbitMQ

    I developed one of the largest queue based medical results delivery systems in the world, 18,000+ queues and still growing over a decade later all using MQSeries, later called Websphere MQ. When I left that company I started using RabbitMQ after doing some research on free offerings.. it works brilliantly and is incredibly flexible from small scale single instance use to large scale multi-server - multi-site architectures.

    If you can think in queues then RabbitMQ should be a viable solution for integrating disparate systems.

    The poster child for scalable messaging systems, RabbitMQ has been used in countless large scale systems as the messaging backbone of any large cluster, and has proven itself time and again in many production settings.

    Rabbit acts as our coordinator for all actions that happen during game time. All worker containers connect to rabbit in order to receive game events and emit their own events when applicable.

    Used as central Message Broker; off-loading tasks to be executed asynchronous, used as communication tool between different microservices, used as tool to handle peaks in incoming data, etc.

    RabbitMQ is the enterprise message bus for our platform, providing infrastructure for managing our ETL queues, real-time event notifications for applications, and audit logging.

    RabbitMQ is an all purpose queuing service for our stack. We use it for user facing jobs as well as keeping track of behind the scenes jobs.

    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.
