Evan Weaver answering a question on quora:
Whether a benchmark is relevant to you always depends on the use case. Very few systems are ever categorically better than others, but many are situationally better (but your situation may change).
The shortest and one of the best comments you can make.
From all NoSQL benchmarks I’ve covered so far, very few represent solid performance evaluations.
