I have been a strong proponent of Couchbase since 2010. However, their cloud service still has a long way to go. Perhaps I was expecting too much. The current version provides little flexibility to start small. I was hoping this service would be a true SaaS to the extent one only pays for usage. That could not be further from reality. The CB cloud creates a significant number of AWS resources into your AWS account, all of which incur cost regardless of how little the database service is used. In fact, I lost nearly a day spoiling deployments merely because I dare override the names with friendlier, more meaningful names. It is just silly to expect admins to distinguish randomly-generated names with UUID's appended to them. I am concerned CB may fall to inferior competitors who have embraced the "per usage" model and the "set-it-and-forget-it" admin model. It is true CB was way ahead of their competition when databases were installed on customer-managed servers. As more and more storage services move to serverless and turn-key, per-usage models, I am concerned CB will be left behind fighting battles few face any longer. Couchbase, please catch back up. Go full serverless,
