StorageReview.com Publishes First Results of MarkLogic(R) NoSQL Database Storage Benchmark Test

Benchmark to Provide Customers With Unprecedented Access to Storage Performance Data in MarkLogic NoSQL Environment

SAN CARLOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/11/13 -- MarkLogic Corporation, provider of ACID-compliant enterprise NoSQL ("not only SQL") database solutions, and StorageReview.com, a world leading independent storage authority, today produced the first public results of StorageReview.com's MarkLogic® NoSQL Database Storage Benchmark test. This test illustrates the performance of flash storage, hard drive arrays and PCIe Application Accelerators running on MarkLogic. The benchmark provides MarkLogic customers with access to the latest storage performance data to guide their selection of new storage solutions for their NoSQL deployments.

"Previous benchmarking efforts just simulated database workloads, but the MarkLogic benchmark provides us with the first opportunity to test an actual NoSQL instance working against the best host-side flash solutions on the market today," said Brian Beeler, Editor in Chief of StorageReview.com. "Our focus in this test is to look at overall latency from each examined storage solution across several performance factors."

The MarkLogic NoSQL database has the flexibility and scalability to handle today's data challenges that SQL-based databases were not designed to handle. It has enterprise-grade capabilities like search, ACID transactions, failover, replication, and security to run mission-critical applications. Any environment that faces the big data challenges of data volume, velocity, variety, and complexity can be enhanced with MarkLogic.

"This test enables our customers and prospects to evaluate the stratification in performance of various storage products being positioned as solutions for NoSQL environments," said Denis Sheahan, Lead Performance Engineer at MarkLogic. "As a result, our customers will be able to easily select a storage solution qualified by StorageReview.com that meets their capacity, budgetary and/or performance needs."

The benchmark is used to evaluate hardware configurations as well as upcoming MarkLogic software releases. The testing workload is divided into two distinct parts:

1. Ingestion phase where a large data set is inserted with indexes into the MarkLogic database.
2. Query phase where searches, views updates, and deletes are applied to the inserted data set. These queries also use MarkLogic features such as facets, pagination and bookmarks.

The benchmark test corpus uses the publicly available Wikipedia xml collection. Files are held on disk in zipped format, and the MarkLogic® Content Pump (mlcp) is used to power an I/O intensive ingestion phase with the goal of generating the highest level of accuracy by forcing each device into steady-state availability. The focus of the test is to look at overall latency from each evaluated storage solution across four areas of interest: journal writes (J-lat), save writes (S-lat), as well as merge read (MR-lat) and merge write latency (MW-lat). Full benchmark test details can be found here.

As part of the benchmark, Mellanox InfiniBand interconnects were used to provide the highest performance and greatest network efficiency during testing. InfiniBand's high-bandwidth, low-latency links allow for the greatest amount of data to be moved over the least number of links, allowing for the full system capabilities to be realized.

"Mellanox InfiniBand interconnects are designed to drive data volumes that are high enough to saturate the performance of tested platforms," said Gilad Shainer, vice president of market development at Mellanox Technologies. "Only when all parts of a system are in balance, can the full performance potential of the overall system be achieved. Mellanox InfiniBand interconnects bring the data delivery connection up to par with MarkLogic's flash-accelerated application performance, allowing for even higher performance in addition to increased infrastructure return on investment."

The full results of the MarkLogic storage performance benchmark can be found here. Results will be updated on an ongoing basis by StorageReview.com as new drives come to market.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
