NoSQL databases are challenging relational technologies by delivering the flexibility required of modern applications. But, which NoSQL database is best architected to handle performance demands of today’s workloads?
Benchmarks recently run by End Point an independent database firm, stress-tested Apache Cassandra, HBase, MongoDB, and Couchbase on operations typical to real-world applications. Results showed that Cassandra outperformed its NoSQL counterparts.
In fact, for mixed operational and analytic workloads typical to modern Web, Mobile and IOT applications, Cassandra performed six times faster than HBase and 195 times faster than MongoDB.
