Our goal was to create a report that was dedicated to testing a few NoSQL databases in order to address a specific class of real-world problems with big data, unlike other published reports that are out there. We focused on how the durability and consistency needs affected raw performance This report will definitely benefit IT decision makers and can help them understand how certain databases can support their application needs. I don’t want to give away the results, so be sure to download the report here to see our findings: http://thumbtack.net/solutions/ThumbtackWhitePaper.

One question that comes up a lot in our discussions with customers is “Tell me which NoSQL database is best.” Of course, the answer to this depends on the use cases and the transactional needs of the specific customer. We regularly go through this analysis with customers, but one thing we find as we start is often the basic questions of how much consistency do I need and what are the tradeoffs involved that have not been answered. We’ve just released the first of a series of reports, which focuses on how key-value stores perform under different durability scenarios.Ultra-High Performance NoSQL Benchmarking: Analyzing Durability and Performance Tradeoffs is a benchmark report created to help organizations answer questions when it comes to NoSQL databases. So what procedures did we implement to make this report possible? First of all, we decided to evaluate four specific databases:
