Benchmarking Distributed SQL Databases

Traditional RDBMS databases run on a single node, and therefore the benchmarks designed for these systems make that implicit assumption. Distributed SQL databases are a new breed that operate on a cluster of nodes. These databases have fundamentally different architectures, requiring a different benchmarking methodology. For example, the network latency between the nodes begins to dominate the write latency since data is replicated synchronously. Understanding the impact of network latency is critical to getting optimal performance. In this talk, we will look at the transactional cloud serving benchmark or TCSB framework built to benchmark distributed, transactional databases, and the results of benchmarking a few such DBs.
