Abstract

This paper describes an experimental study regarding NoSQL database performance. Two NoSQL databases were considered (MongoDB and Cassandra), two different workloads (update heavy and mostly read) and several degrees of parallelism. The results refer to throughput performance metric. Statistical analysis performed is referring to throughput results. Conclusions confirm that MongoDB performs better than Cassandra in the context of a mostly read workload, while Cassandra outperformed MongoDB in the context of an update heavy workload where the number of operations was high.
