James Philips (Couchbase) for Curt Monash:
- MongoDB is the big competition. He believes Couchbase has an excellent win rate vs. 10gen for actual paying accounts.
- DataStax/Cassandra wins over Couchbase only when multi-data-center capability is important. Naturally, multi-data-center capability is planned for Couchbase. (Indeed, that’s one of the benefits of swapping in CouchDB at the back end.)
- Redis has “dropped off the radar”, presumably because there’s no particular persistence strategy for it.
- Riak doesn’t show up much.
I assume this is sort of a pre-sales/sales department 100k feet overview.
