Nejc Škerjanc (2012) Performance comparison between NoSQL and relational database. EngD thesis.
The aim of this bachelor thesis is a comparison between relation databases and NoSQL databases. The first ones are in use for more than 30 years. The majority of professionals were convinced that they achieved top of technology on this field. The NoSQL databases were developed with the development of social network, computing in cloud and processing data stream. Those databases could easily follow the need of high availability and scalability. In this bachelor thesis the most known NoSQL databases are presented with description and presentation features. The practical part introduces performance analysis between NoSQL database Cassandra and classical relation database MySQL. They are both installed on more nodes. We described handling and managing with Cassandra, comparison from the perspective of safety in case of hacking into system or the possibility of natural disasters (earthquake, floods, etc.)With this bachelor thesis the aim is to offer a specific answer about choice between relation databases or NoSQL databases, which are based on practical performance tests.
