Aerospike Demonstrates 14x Greater Throughput and 42x Lower Read Latency Compared to Cassandra in New NoSQL Database Benchmark (June 28, 2016)


Apache Cassandra is known for its blazing fast throughput. But what happens when you run Cassandra for 12 consecutive hours in a production-oriented setup vs. Aerospike? Aerospike beats Cassandra’s throughput by an order of magnitude. A similarly sized Aerospike cluster can process 14x more transactions, with 42x lower query latency and 24x lower update latency.
