Capella’s faster performance can save you money

We recently tested 5 nodes of Capella versus 5 nodes of CE using the YCSB benchmarking standards. Capella is up to 3 times more efficient than CE, with overall lower latency. Those performance improvements mean that Capella can match CE performance with less hardware, reducing your costs.

How does Capella deliver more value?

Capella offers customers the value of Enterprise Edition as a fully managed service. Customers get more capabilities, better performance, less risk, less management effort, and more.
