Couchbase virtualization process

This page serves as a quick reference overview of the steps used to perform an implementation of the CouchbaseDB Connector. Each step briefly describes the task and the expected result. Refer to the respective documentation links for more detailed information. 

  1. Begin by reviewing the general Delphix Continuous Data architecture diagrams. Identify existing or new CouchbaseDB source, staging, and target environments, the underlying operating systems, and the CouchbaseDB database versions. This provides a good understanding of the architectural strategy to confirm support. 

  2. Review the Couchbase requirements and prerequisites. Please verify the CouchbaseDB Connector complies with all system prerequisites, including those of Continuous Data, staging/target environments, Operating Systems, and CouchbaseDB database versions. Verifying this information is essential to align with the features and functionalities of the connector.

  3. Install the CouchbaseDB Connector. The CouchbaseDB Connector establishes the connection between the Delphix Continuous Data Engine and the connector version. It is recommended to stay up-to-date with the latest version.

  4. Adding staging and target environments. The staging environment will host a database that the Delphix Continuous Data Engine keeps in sync with the source environment database, at an interval chosen by the user. The target environment will provide the infrastructure to generate virtual database (VDB) copies.

    1. Consult the Couchbase host environment requirements documentation for configuration details.

  5. Adding a Couchbase installation to an environment. To enable the Delphix Continuous Data Engine to recognize the provided infrastructure, search for a CouchbaseDB installation to make available for database linking and provisioning. 

  6. Linking the CouchbaseDB database. This configures a dSource that enables the syncing mechanism between the source database, staging database, and the Delphix Continuous Data Engine. There are many ingestion methods that differ between connectors and solve different requirements. It is best to identify the ingestion method that best suits your organization and infrastructure policies.

  7. Provisioning Couchbase VDBs. Administrators and Self-Service users can provision one or more copies of their virtual databases (VDBs).
