Independent study by respected big data implementation firm Avalon Consulting, LLC available for download

Plano, Texas – March 19, 2015 – Avalon Consulting, LLC today announced the release of a white paper offering the results and analysis of a performance benchmark comparing Couchbase Server 3.0.2 and MongoDB 3.0. The study, conducted independently by experienced NoSQL experts at Avalon, concluded that Couchbase Server 3.0.2 performed at a scale many orders of magnitude greater than MongoDB 3.0 on the key technical measures of concurrency, throughput, and latency.  Additionally, in terms of a critical business performance measurement, the cost per operation for an enterprise-scale deployment of Couchbase Server was calculated to be as low as 22% of that for MongoDB.  The full performance benchmark study is available for download.

The rapidly evolving and compelling NoSQL domain space is no exception to that,” said Casey Green, EVP of Corporate Strategy, Avalon Consulting, LLC. “We also seek to deeply understand and effectively communicate not only the technical considerations, but the business value advantages, that relate to technology choices.
