Cassandra for Internet of Things: An experimental evaluation



The proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) increases the amount of data that is being produced. Therefore it is extremely important to find the best possible storage engine to process these huge amounts of data. With the intent of discovering which database engine better supports the characteristics of an IoT system it is essential to analyse the existing databases and test them in a practical context. With this objective we decided to use one of the most popular databases, Cassandra, to evaluate it on an IoT environment. We evaluate the querying processing time of Cassandra using queries of an IoT real time environment and comparing it with different types of data architectures. The main focus of this work is to investigate if Cassandra can provide good performance in an IoT system.
