The benchmark consisted of Node.js instances simultaneously executing Voter
transactions against the VoltDB database. Each Node.js instance processed
transactions at throughput of ~11,000 per second, and scaling was highly linear from
32 to 64 instances, at which point the benchmark had achieved aggregate
throughput of 695,000 TPS.
