Multi-model benchmark round 1 – completed

013PerformanceTags: , ,
The latest edition of the NoSQL Performance Benchmark (2018) has been released. Please click here

It’s time for another update of my NoSQL performance blog series. This hopefully concludes the first part of this series with the initial databases ArangoDB, MongoDB, Neo4J and OrientDB and I can now start to check out other databases. I’m getting a lot of requests to test others as well and I’ll try to add them as soon as possible. Pull requests to my repository are also more than welcome. Remember it is all open-source.

The first set of benchmarks was started as a proof that multi-model can compete with specialized solutions and I started with the corresponding top dogs (Neo4J and MongoDB) for graphs and documents. After the first blog post, we were asked by the community to include OrientDB as the other multi-model database, too, which makes sense and therefore I expanded the initial lineup.

Concluding the tests did take a bit longer than expected, because vendors took up the challenge and improved their products with impressive results – as we asked them to do. Still, for each iteration we needed some time to run all tests, see below. However, on the upside, everyone can benefit from the improvements, which is an awesome by-product of the benchmark tests.

Data Modeling with Multi-Model Databases

03Graphs, PublicationTags:

Max published an article on O’Reilly Radar about the use case he presented on Strata+Hadoop World in London earlier this year.

Read how multi-model databases can be used in an aircraft fleet maintenance system by mixing different data models within the same data store. 20150612_arangodb-treeofitems-01

A query language like AQL can help to answer maintenance questions like:

  • What are all the parts in a given component?
  • Given a (broken) part, what is the smallest component of the aircraft that contains the part and for which there is a maintenance procedure?
  • Which parts of this aircraft need maintenance next week?

Slides: Is multi-model the future of NoSQL?

00Future-of-nosql, PresentationTags: ,

Here is a slideshare and recording of my talk about multi-model databases, presented in Santa Clara earlier this month.

Abstract: Recently a new breed of “multi-model” databases has emerged. They are a document store, a graph database and a key/value store combined in one program. Therefore they are able to cover a lot of use cases which otherwise would need multiple different database systems. This approach promises a boost to the idea of “polyglot persistence“, which has become very popular in recent years although it creates some friction in the form of data conversion and synchronisation between different systems. This is, because with a multi-model database one can enjoy the benefits of polyglot persistence without the disadvantages.

In this talk I will explain the motivation behind the multi-model approach, discuss its advantages and limitations, and will then risk to make some predictions about the NoSQL database market in five years time. More info
