NoSQL Performance Benchmarks Series: Cassandra

NoSQL PerformanceBenchmarks SeriesCouchbase

Benchmark Abstract

We all know Cassandra is supposed to scale, but what is its exact scaling pattern? How much faster does it get if you add an extra node? Is it truly linear? How sensitive is it to hardware constraints?

What's Inside

1
Horizontal & Vertical Scaling
Our tests were designed to verify cluster behavior under normal operating circumstances; see read and write time results.
2
Performance-to-Price Ratio
Cassandra has unique scaling patterns - see what configuration we tested delivered the best value.
3
Docker, Virtualisation & Bare Metal
See how using Docker or virtualisation compares to deploying Cassandra on bare metal.
