NoSQL Technical Comparison Report

This report provides an in-depth analysis of the leading NoSQL systems:

  • Cassandra (DataStax Enterprise v5.0)
  • Couchbase Server (v5.0)
  • MongoDB (v3.4)

Unlike other NoSQL comparisons that focus only on one or two dimensions, this research approaches the evaluated solutions from different angles to help you choose the best option based on performance, availability, data consistency, fault tolerance,and other criteria.

In addition to general information on each evaluated data store, the report contains recommendations on the best ways to configure, install, and use NoSQL databases depending on their specific features. In the last chapter, you will find a comparative table that summarizes how MongoDB, Cassandra, and Couchbase Server scored for each criterion—on a scale from 1 to 10.
