Couchbase vs Redis: 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, Redis is detailed as "An in-memory database that persists on disk". 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.
Couchbase belongs to "Databases" category of the tech stack, while Redis can be primarily classified under "In-Memory Databases".
"Flexible data model, easy scalability, extremely fast" is the primary reason why developers consider Couchbase over the competitors, whereas "Performance" was stated as the key factor in picking Redis.
Redis is an open source tool with 37.4K GitHub stars and 14.4K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Redis's open source repository on GitHub.
Airbnb, Uber Technologies, and Instagram are some of the popular companies that use Redis, whereas Couchbase is used by Geefu, Vestiaire Collective, and opening.io. Redis has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3261 company stacks & 1781 developers stacks; compared to Couchbase, which is listed in 45 company stacks and 21 developer stacks.
