How did Aerospike do on Cassandra’s own Benchmark?

Cassandra recently ran a benchmark entitled “Benchmarking Top NoSQL Databases”.  As the test did not include Aerospike, we ran Cassandra’s own benchmark ourselves.  The outcome?  Aerospike both dramatically outperformed Cassandra on the benchmarks and came in at about 20% of Cassandra’s cost.

Cloud Spectator: Benchmarks of Bare-Metal and Virtual Cloud

To quantify the performance differential of running Aerospike’s in-memory NoSQL database on bare-metal and virtual cloud infrastructure, Cloud Spectator conducted throughput speed and latency benchmark tests for three different types of workloads on Internap’s bare-metal servers and AWS EC2 I2…

Performance Analysis: Benchmarking Aerospike NoSQL Database on Internap Bare Metal and Virtualized Public Cloud (Amazon EC2 and Rackspace)

Internap commissioned this study, which finds that for a high-performance, transaction-intensive NoSQL database such as Aerospike that parallelizes processing across cores and SSDs, dedicated hardware and strong internal network connections deliver a marked difference in performance relative to virtualized public cloud environments.
