This is the first of a series of performance benchmarks on NoSQL DBs that we plan to share with you. Our goal is to understand the various scaling profiles of distributed database technologies as well as identify environments that provide optimum performance/price. Many of our findings can be applied to on premise infrastructure as well and even some cloud scenarios.
This performance benchmark on Couchbase shows sub-millisecond response times but also a difference between GET/PUT operations and QUERY operations when multiple instances are added to the cluster. We have also tested the Memory-Access-Time sensitivity of Couchbase. Continue Reading
