According to the firm’s benchmark test results, Cassandra outperformed the other three NoSQL databases. Aerospike was disappointed that we were not included in this evaluation. When End Point’s tests were published, …

Database Benchmarking for Speed at Scale: Review of “Speed with Ease”

Brian Bulkowski, Aerospike Founder and CTO Benchmark

  Aerospike recently published a manifesto regarding benchmarking in the NoSQL space. Although database benchmarks are notoriously slanted, NoSQL arguably must deliver both speed and scale – and although every benchmark can’t be perfect, anyone reading a benchmark should be aware of its shortcomings. Lynn Langit, independent Cloud Architect, Google Cloud Developer Expert, AWS Community …

It’s Official- Aerospike is 10x faster than Cassandra and MongoDB!

Cuneyt Buyukbezci, Aerospike VP of Marketing Benchmark

In an independent benchmark test of NoSQL databases conducted by Thumbtack Technology, Aerospike wiped out the competition, delivering nearly 10 times the throughput. The Thumbtack benchmark used Yahoo! Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB) to simulate a high-throughput environment, typical of many consumer-facing website applications. The flash drive/SSD optimizations of Aerospike delivered an unprecedented speed advantage over other ...
