On September 21, 2012, Renat Khasanshyn, the Founder and Chairman of Altoros, made a session “Benchmarking Couchbase Server” at CouchConf that was held in San Francisco. The event was attended by 400 NoSQL developers and users. The conference featured sessions by Orbitz, LinkedIn, Tapjoy, IBM, Sabre Holdings, McGraw Hill, and others. The industry leaders as well as common NoSQL users came to learn about a new 2.0 release of Couchbase Server and share their experience in implementation of this NoSQL database.
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 with different types of workloads. To reveal the truth, three popular NoSQL products were compared: MongoDB, Cassandra, and Couchbase Server 2.0. The analysis was made using the YCSB framework and the performance was tested on Amazon virtual machines. The results of the comparison were presented in graphs.
