Two Sides of the OMGPOP Cloud and Couchbase Scalability Story

Many media sites published on Friday the PR release of OMGPOP growth story citing the usage of cloud services and Couchbase as their scaling solution (GigaOm, BusinessInsider).

When reading it, I’ve jotted down:

  1. The good: using a combination of cloud and a NoSQL database (Couchbase) allowed OMGPOP to scale
  2. The bad: OMGPOP had to call in people from Couchbase to help out with scaling

Question is if you can throw in more iron and hire experts wouldn’t many other database solutions be able to cope with OMGPOP’s growth?
