Topology: The Architecture of Distributed Systems [sponsor]

Words from the special myNoSQL sponsor, Couchbase:


You can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can judge the architecture of a distributed system by its topology.

If two distributed systems are equally effective, is the one with the simpler topology the one with the better architecture? This article compares the architecture of two document databases and two wide column stores by looking at their topologies.

Document Databases

Topology #1

doc_db_one

Wow. There is a lot going on here. There are four node types and two layers of logical groupings.

Topology #2

doc_db_two

Nice. Simple. There is one node type.

Which document database would you choose?

  • Which one is going to be easier to deploy?
  • Which one is going to be easier to maintain?
  • Which one is going to be easier to scale?
  • Which one is going to be more resilient?

I believe the less moving parts, the better.

The NoSQL KISS [sponsor]

In the words of the special sponsor, Couchbase:


Kelly knew it. The U.S. Navy knows it. You know it.

Keep it Simple, Stupid (KISS)

The Problem

We categorized NoSQL implementations. The categories include distributed caches, key / value stores, and document databases. However, what if application requirements span multiple categories? Do you add Redis, Riak, and MongoDB? The result would not be simple, stupid.

whatthehellhaveyoubuilt

The Solution

Let distributed caching, key / value storage, and document handling be use cases. The solution is a single NoSQL implementation that supports multiple use cases. In fact, Viber recently solved this problem. Their previous architecture relied on MongoDB for document processing and Redis for distributed caching. Their current architecture relies on Couchbase Server as a single replacement for both MongoDB and Redis. Read the full story.

The evolution of scalable NoSQL at Viber [sponsor]

The story of Viber’s NoSQL expedition that took them from MongoDB to Couchbase Server, told in this sponsored post by Couchbase:


As one of the fastest growing VoIP services in the world, the challenge at Viber has been to build and maintain a scalable architecture that is capable of sustaining exponential growth. The first-generation architecture was built on top of a custom, in-memory database. However, within months, the database could no longer keep up with the growth the company was experiencing.

Viber DB architecture - 1st generation

The second-generation architecture was built on top of MongoDB shards. Next, Redis was added as a cache on top of the MongoDB shards to increase throughput. Still, MongoDB was unable to meet the high throughput requirements. Finally, a second Redis cluster was added independent of the MongoDB shards. The second-generation architecture was compromised of 150 MongoDB nodes and over 100 Redis nodes.

Viber DB architecture - 2nd generation

The third-generation architecture had to support 100,000+ operations per second in the short term and 1,000,000+ operations per second in the long term. Viber chose to build their third-generation architecture on top of Couchbase Server. The third-generation architecture is compromised of 100 to 120 Couchbase Server nodes.

Viber DB architecture - 3rd generation

Viber has been able to reduce the number of database nodes required while increasing the throughput with their third-generation architecture. For example, one of their Couchbase clusters (a ten node cluster) handles 100,000 to 200,000 operations per second with over 4.5 terabytes of data.

Aerospike Capacity Planning Kit [sponsor]

Words from myNoSQL’s long time supporter, Aerospike:


Download the Capacity Planning Kit to determine your database storage capacity and node requirements. The kit includes a step-by-step Capacity Planning Guide and a Planning worksheet.

Free download.


While I haven’t used this one myself, having a tool for sizing your cluster sounds pretty helpful.
