Benchmarking a NoSQL Database on Bare Metal versus Public Cloud

In this report, Cloud Spectator benchmark tests validate the price-performance advantages of running big data workloads in bare-metal environments.

The ability to quickly and cost-effectively manage large amounts of data is critical for companies delivering applications over the Internet. NoSQL databases are commonly used to provide a scalable system to store, retrieve and analyze big data; however, in a virtualized public cloud environment, performance can suffer as a result of multitenancy and processing overhead created by the introduction of a hypervisor layer. Bare-metal environments eliminate these issues by providing a physical server dedicated to a single user without a hypervisor layer.
