Benchmark Review - Lynn Langit's Performance Discussion of Aerospike Database on Google Compute Engine (GCE) (January 6, 2016)

Aerospike recently published a manifesto regarding benchmarking in the NoSQL database space. Although database benchmarks are notoriously slanted, NoSQL arguably must deliver both speed and scale – and although no benchmark is perfect, anyone reading a benchmark should be aware of its shortcomings.

Lynn Langit, independent Cloud Architect, Google Cloud Developer Expert, AWS Community Hero and Microsoft MVP, recently published “Speed with Ease – NoSQL on the Google Cloud Platform”, a discussion of the performance of Aerospike on the Google Cloud Platform. It is a long thread of several posts about NoSQL performance on Google Compute Engine, including this post from Ivan Filho, Performance Engineering Lead at Google.

Does Lynn Langit’s performance discussion measure up to the standards set forth in Aerospike’s Database Manifesto? Find out in this benchmark review by Brian Bulkowski, Co-Founder and CTO of Aerospike.
