	abstract	 = {After a short introduction to NoSQL and file systems, this thesis will look at various of the popular NoSQL database management systems as well as some younger approaches, opposing to their similarities and dissimilarities. Based on those analogies and recent developments, a selection of those databases will be analysed further, with the focus on scalability and performance. The main part of this analysis will be the setup of multiple instances of these databases, reviewing and comparing the setup process, as well as developing and evaluating benchmarks. The benchmarks will be focused on access patterns commonly found in file systems, which are to be found in the course of this thesis.},
