Over the last few years, Cloud storage systems and so-called NoSQL datastores have found widespread adoption. In contrast to traditional databases, these storage systems typically sacrifice consistency in favor of latency and availability as mandated by the CAP theorem, so that they only guarantee eventual consistency. Existing approaches to benchmark these storage systems typically omit the consistency dimension or did not investigate eventuality of consistency guarantees. In this work we present a novel approach to benchmark staleness in distributed datastores and use the approach to evaluate Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3). We report on our unexpected findings.
