Distributed SQL performance benchmarks that cut through the hype
Distributed SQL databases promise consistency, a standard query language, cloud scale, high availability and disaster recovery. These databases evolved from standard relational databases and NoSQL databases combined with new algorithmic technology. They are relatively new on the market and published performance data is sparse. MariaDB hopes to change this by providing fair and transparent results.
This paper details the performance result of MariaDB Xpand and CockroachDB's respective cloud offering using Amazon Web Services (AWS), and takes a deeper dive into the data, looks at latency as a factor, analyzes price/performance metrics and explains how to reproduce the results.
