Yahoo Cloud Serving Benchmark: SPARC S7-2 and Oracle NoSQL

Oracle's SPARC S7-2 server delivered 341 Kops/sec on 300 million records for the Yahoo Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB) running a 95% read, 5% update workload using Oracle NoSQL Database 4.0. NoSQL is important for Big Data Analysis and for Cloud Computing.

  • The SPARC S7-2 server was 1.9 times faster per core than a two-chip x86 E5-2699 v4 server running YCSB with a 95% read, 5% update workload.

Oracle NoSQL Database Licensing

We have received a number of questions about the Oracle NoSQL Database licensing  policy, so we wanted to clear things up.

Oracle NoSQL Database consists of two versions, each with a client and server license. The two versions of the distribution are commonly referred to as the Community Edition (CE) and the Enterprise Edition (EE). Each version contains a client license (where the application runs) and the server license (where the application data is stored).

Enterprise Edition (EE):

Oracle NoSQL Database Cluster YCSB Testing with Fusion ioMemory™ Storage

Highly distributed systems with large data stores in the form of NoSQL databases are becoming increasingly important to enterprises, not just to hyperscale organizations. NoSQL databases are being deployed for capturing patient sensors data in health care, smart meter analysis in utilities, customer sentiment analysis in retail, and various other use cases in different industries. NoSQL database systems help organizations store, manage, and analyze huge amounts of data on distributed system architecture. The sheer volume of data and the distributed system design needed to manage this large data at a reasonable cost necessitated a different category of database systems, leading to NoSQL databases. Oracle NoSQL Database is part of the NoSQL database family and is based on a distributed, key-value architecture.

This technical white paper describes a three-node Oracle NoSQL Database Cluster deployment procedure on Fusion ioMemory™ storage. The following points are emphasized:

  • Highlights performance and scalability advantages compared to traditional spinning disks.
  • Because enterprises evaluate and assess new technologies for enterprise-wide adaptability, Yahoo Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB) is the standard benchmark tool employed for testing and is the same tool used in this paper to evaluate Oracle NoSQL Database for YCSB Benchmark Testing.
  • Analysis and discussion are provided for throughput and latency testing results with YCSB.
