Rok Žlender (2011) Performance comparison of non-relational database systems. EngD thesis.
Deciding on which data store to use is one of the most important aspects of every project. Besides the established relational database systems non-relational solutions are gaining in their popularity. Non-relational database systems provide an interesting alternative when we are storing large amount of data or when we are looking for greater flexibility with our data model. Purpose of this thesis is to measure and analyze how chosen non-relational database systems compare against each other and against a relational database MySQL. Because database systems vary widely by their intended use cases I selected different test scenarios. In first chapters selected database systems, their features and their solutions to distributing data are described. Next the test environment is presented describing selected hardware and software used in performance analysis. Finally test results are presented and analyzed.
