Couchbase Server Benchmark @ CouchConf (Slides)

Alena Vasilenko

On Sep 21, 2012, Renat Khasanshyn, CEO at Altoros, delivered a session “Benchmarking Couchbase Server” at CouchConf held in San Francisco. The event was attended by 400 NoSQL developers and featured presentations by Orbitz, LinkedIn, Tapjoy, IBM, Sabre Holdings, McGraw Hill, and others.

In his session, Renat highlighted that all NoSQL vendors say their databases are fast and scalable, but this is not really helpful for end users. They want to know how a particular database will manage different types of workloads. To reveal the truth, three NoSQL systems were compared: MongoDB, Cassandra, and Couchbase Server 2.0. The analysis was made using the YCSB framework; the performance was tested on Amazon virtual machines. The results of the comparison were introduced in the presentation below.

This study is one of NoSQL benchmarks we’re currently working on. The results of other researches will be presented within the next two months.

    Looks Couchbase outperformed MongoDB and Cassandra a lot. Any reason makes none of your featured projects (http://altoros.com/featured_projects.html?cp_technology=nosql) was using it?

      Hi Steven,

      We have been working on a number of projects recently where Couchbase is used. Soon we are planning to publish them in the Featured projects or as case studies. Will post a comment here when they are on our web site.
