Couchbase vs TiDB: 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, TiDB is detailed as "A distributed NewSQL database compatible with MySQL protocol". Inspired by the design of Google F1, TiDB supports the best features of both traditional RDBMS and NoSQL.
Couchbase and TiDB can be categorized 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, TiDB provides the following key features:
- Horizontal scalability
- Asynchronous schema changes
- Consistent distributed transactions
TiDB is an open source tool with 19.6K GitHub stars and 2.85K GitHub forks. Here's a link to TiDB's open source repository on GitHub.

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.
