Sub-Milisecond Response with Couchbase

Benchmark Abstract

Learn what makes Couchbase one of the highest-performing NoSQL databases we have seen in our lab so far, with consistent sub-milisecond responses. Discover our hardware & software setup, and see the results.

What's Inside

  1. Monitoring Query Performance
    Our tests were designed to verify cluster behavior under normal operating circumstances; see PUT, GET and QUERY runs results.
  2. Performance-to-Price Ratio
    Couchbase has a very interesting scaling pattern - some metrics decrease and some increase as we add servers; see what configuration delivered the best value.
  3. The Impact of Auto-Compaction and Virtualisation
    Learn about the impact that the default auto-compacting setting has on a PUT series and how virtualization influences memory response time bound applications such as NoSQL databases.
