NoSQL technology was pioneered by leading internet companies — including Google, Facebook, Amazon, and LinkedIn — to overcome the limitations of 40-year-old relational database technology for use with modern web applications. Today, enterprises are adopting NoSQL for a growing number of uses cases, a choice that is driven by four interrelated megatrends: Big Users, Big Data, the Internet of Things, and Cloud Computing.
The convergence of social networks, mobile platforms, connected things, big data and cloud infrastructure redefined interactive applications. It redefined the number of users, the data, the infrastructure and a new generation of databases emerged.
Today, successful enterprises are moving beyond relational databases.

Thumbtack Technology performed extensive testing to benchmark the three leading NoSQL databases: Couchbase Server, MongoDB, and Apache Cassandra / DataStax Enterprise. The result is a comprehensive benchmark report presenting the results of both performance and scalability testing.
The tests were performed with different workloads, increasing client threads, and increasing cluster sizes on dedicated hardware to measure performance and scalability.
- Which database exceeded 1 million operations per second?
- Which database maintained sub-millisecond latency?
- Which database scaled to over 4,000 concurrent clients?
The final report includes detailed configuration for the tests, the hardware, the network, and the databases.Link to Download the report (registration required): 2014 NoSQL Benchmark Showdown
