This is an attempt to create a benchmark for apples to apples comparisons of databases that are generally described as NoSQL, key-value, schema-free or schema-less databases. The goals are to create a benchmark that:
- is simple to understand and code - ideally, a page of code or less in most programming languages;
- performs a non-trivial amount of representative activity - reads and updates, access contention, recovery, etc.; and
- generates results that can be easily replicated and verified by others.
