Thumbtack Technologies reports, "As NoSQL databases move into the mainstream, there is growing confusion about the benefits and tradeoffs each major system makes to support different use cases. Today, Thumbtack Technology has published a report analyzing how NoSQL databases perform under conditions of extremely high load—addressing an increasingly common use case with big data. The report, entitled Ultra-High Performance NoSQL Benchmarking: Analyzing Durability and Performance Tradeoffs, is available from Thumbtack here: http://thumbtack.net/solutions/ThumbtackWhitePaper.html."
The article continues, "The Thumbtack benchmark report is intended to help organizations obtain an independent understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of various NoSQL database approaches to supporting applications that process huge volumes of data and need durable and consistent storage semantics. In it, Thumbtack takes a focused, tuned and optimized approach to answering specific real-world questions by evaluating four databases (Aerospike, Cassandra, Couchbase, and MongoDB) as they would be optimized for this scenario."
