AWS, Oracle, Microsoft, Google, IBM Lead Cloud DBMS Market

Mark Haranas

Here’s the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems, which ranks the top 20 global leaders in the market—from AWS, Microsoft and Oracle to Snowflake, SAP and Databricks.

Niche Player: Couchbase

The Couchbase Capella multimodel DBMS has a heritage in high-performance nonrelational operational databases.

Santa Clara, Calif.-based Couchbase has recently focused on relational capabilities such as SQL, schema and transactions, deepening hybrid analytical use cases, and extending cloud provider support.

Weakness: Gartner’s Peer Insight reviews show Couchbase as having one of the lowest scores for support among vendors in the Magic Quadrant. This could be due to the nature of products in this market subsegment, Gartner said.

Strength: Couchbase has positioned itself as a leader in the mobile and edge space, allowing for synchronization with edge data stores even if they are periodically not connected to a central service. Additionally, Couchbase appeals to developers who like the flexibility of a document-based approach.
