Benchmarking an 18 Terabyte YugaByte DB Cluster with High Density Data Nodes

For ever-growing data workloads such as time series metrics and IoT sensor events, running a highly dense database cluster where each node stores terabytes of data makes perfect sense from a cost efficiency standpoint. If we are spinning up new data nodes only to get more storage-per-node, then there is a significant wastage of expensive compute resources. However, running multi-terabyte data nodes with Apache Cassandra as well as other Cassandra-compatible databases (such as DataStax Enterprise) is not an option.

YugaByte DB performance on large data sets

One of our users was interested to learn more about YugaByte DB’s behavior for a random read workload where the data set does not fit in RAM and queries need to read data from disk (i.e. an uncached random read workload).

The intent was to verify if YugaByte DB was designed well to handle this case with the optimal number of IOs to the disk subsystem.
