Couchbase Blows Past Competition in NoSQL Performance Benchmark

Inc., provider of the most complete NoSQL database, today announced
preliminary results of an independent
NoSQL benchmark by Thumbtack Technology, Inc., an industry leader in
NoSQL consulting services, with engagements across industries from ad
tech to financial services.
The scalability and performance benchmark followed the industry
benchmark standards developed by the Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB)
and found that when measured against common workloads on some of the
most common use cases, Couchbase consistently outperformed the
“Couchbase Server is quickly becoming the de facto standard for an
enterprise class, scalable NoSQL database that can reliably support
mission critical applications and a wide variety of use cases,” said Bob
Wiederhold, CEO of Couchbase. “It is also becoming obvious that MongoDB
is simply not architected for managing mission critical enterprise
deployments at scale. This is why companies like Viber are replacing
Mongo with Couchbase, and companies like PayPal choose Couchbase over
the competition, as the next generation architecture for their business.”
Couchbase’s design translates into the unmatched performance, which was
demonstrated by the Thumbtack Technology benchmark:
Couchbase Server read-intensive throughput was 6x more than MongoDB
Couchbase Server read-intensive throughput was 7x more than DataStax
Couchbase Server balanced read / write throughput was 7x more than
Couchbase Server balanced read / write throughput was 2x more than
“Thumbtack works with organizations around the world to build and deploy
scalable solutions. We have implemented almost all the leading NoSQL
vendors – including the three tested in this benchmark,” said Ben
Engber, Thumbtack Technologies. “Our intention with this benchmark is to
provide a current set of metrics for database performance that is easy
for others to verify and duplicate. We believe this study does that
quite well, and as a result, we are confident in our results that
Couchbase Server 2.5 outperforms the competition on all measures.”
About the benchmark
The new benchmark, conducted by Thumbtack Technology, was done with the
goal of comparing several popular NoSQL databases in simple and common
use cases. The company has led production implementations at client
sites for all versions of the databases tested and worked directly with
each vendor to ensure optimal configuration for each of the tests.
Thumbtack Technology ran two classic use case scenarios. The first
emulated a typical application of 95% reads and 5% writes and the second
emulated peak write loads, with 50% reads and 50% writes. Thumbtack
Technology provided the testing parameters to ensure that anyone wanting
to replicate the tests is able to do so. These include:
Tested database versions: Couchbase 2.5, DataStax 2.0.7 and MongoDB
Use of the Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark
Keeping 90% of the dataset in RAM to achieve the highest performance
Running each database on dedicated hardware backed by SSD storage
More details will be available in the full July report.
Couchbase Server was designed from a simple, yet bold vision: build the
first general purpose NoSQL database. That bold vision meant that the
architecture had to support a large variety of use cases and a future
laden with exponentially growing scalability performance and usability
requirements. The Server currently organically consolidates the caching
tier and the database tier. This gives Couchbase performance
characteristics of a cache and the durability of a database. These
foundational principles make the server easy to manage, perform at high
speeds, scale horizontally and provide the highest availability.
Couchbase provides the world’s most complete, most scalable and best
performing NoSQL database. Couchbase Server is designed from a simple
yet bold vision: build the first and best, general-purpose NoSQL
database. That goal has resulted in an industry leading solution that
includes a shared nothing architecture, a single node-type, a built-in
caching layer, true auto-sharding and the world’s first NoSQL mobile
offering: Couchbase Mobile, a complete NoSQL mobile solution comprised
of Couchbase Server, Couchbase Sync Gateway and Couchbase Lite.
Couchbase Server and all Couchbase Mobile products are open source
projects. Couchbase counts many of the world’s biggest brands as its
customers, including Amadeus, Bally’s, Beats Music, Cisco, Comcast,
Concur, Disney, eBay / PayPal, Neiman Marcus, Orbitz, Rakuten / Viber,
Sky, Tencent and Verizon, as well as hundreds of other household names
worldwide. Couchbase is headquartered in Silicon Valley, and is backed
by leading VC’s including Accel Partners, Adams Street Partners,
Ignition Partners, Mayfield Fund and North Bridge Venture Partners. www.couchbase.com

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
