NoSQL Key-Value Stores: Comparing Raw Performance, Reliability

As NoSQL solutions have proliferated and differentiated themselves (into key-value stores, document databases, graph databases, and “NewSQL”), trying to evaluate the database landscape for a particular class of problem becomes more and more difficult. This white paper attempts to answer this question for one specific, but critical, class of functionality – applications that need the highest possible raw performance for a reliable storage engine.

This report analyzes the performance characteristics of four key-value datastores: Cassandra, Couchbase, Aerospike, and MongoDB with the goal of measuring their suitability for classes of applications that have extremely high transactional loads and who can architect their applications around a basic set of operations in order to achieve this scale.
