Google using Cassandra to show the performance and cost efficiency of the Google Compute Engine:
- sustain one million writes per second to Cassandra with a median latency of
10.3 ms and 95% completing under 23 ms
- sustain a loss of 1/3 of the instances and volumes and still maintain the 1
million writes per second (though with higher latency)
- scale up and down linearly so that the configuration described can be used
to create a cost effective solution
- go from nothing in existence to a fully configured and deployed instances
hitting 1 million writes per second took just 70 minutes. A configured
environment can achieve the same throughput in 20 minutes.
Make sure you check the charts and get to the conclusion part. The other conclusion I’d suggest is: based on the real benchmarks I’ve seen over the years, Cassandra is the only system that was proven to scale lineary and provide top performance.
