Not a particularly scientific benchmark, but does highlight some of the deficiencies in the NoSQL argument. The data in the Mongo test seems more suited to a SQL data model, so the take away from me is to use SQL where appropriate - and use NoSQL where you actually get a performance gain. There's still too much smoke and mirrors for me to be convinced that NoSQL databases are a better option in the general case, so I do appreciate the counter argument here - though it would have been nice to see a tuned MongoDB instance being compared to the Oracle instance on the same hardware.
