I did some work with the Aerospike team and some other partners (@dchaley and @jamesrcounts) to validate Aerospike performance benchmarks on the Google Cloud using GCE instances.
In addition to blogging about the relatively simple 6-step process of setting up a 20-node cluster to get this mind-boggling performance, my team also wrote some scripts so that you can easily replicate our work.
Also, I recorded a screencast about Aerospike which includes a live demo of the performance benchmark – guess what? we actually got an even HIGHER benchmark tonight – between 5 and 6 MILLION TPS for read-only workloads. We also added a test for a mixed workload – 50% read/50% write. We got over 1 MILLION TPS for both the reads and the writes using the same size cluster – BAM!
