A Non-functional evaluation of NoSQL Database Management Systems
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
NoSQL is basically a family name for all Database Management Systems (DBMS) that is not Relational DBMS. The fast growth of all social networks has led to a huge amount of unstructured data that NoSQL DBMS is supposed to handle better than Relational DBMS. Most comparisons performed are between Relational DBMS and NoSQL DBMS. In this paper, the comparison is about non-functional properties for different types of NoSQL DBMS instead. Three of the most common NoSQL types are Document Stores, Key-Value Stores and Column Stores. The most used DBMS of those types are MongoDB, Redis and Apache Cassandra. After working with the databases and performing YCSB Benchmarking the conclusion is that if the database should handle an enormous amount of data, Cassandra is most probably best choice. If speed is the most important property and if all data fits within the memory; Redis is probably the most well suited database. If the database needs to be flexible and versatile, MongoDB is probably the best choice.
