The database landscape has significantly evolved over the last decade as cloud computing enables to run distributed databases on virtually unlimited cloud resources. Hence, the already non-trivial task of selecting and deploying a distributed database system becomes more challenging. Database evaluation frameworks aim at easing this task by guiding the database selection and deployment decision. The evaluation of databases has evolved as well by moving the evaluation focus from performance to

This paper presents a cloud-centric analysis of distributed database evaluation frameworks based on evaluation tiers and framework requirements. It analysis eight well adopted evaluation frameworks. The results point out that the evaluation tiers performance, scalability, elasticity and consistency are well supported, in contrast to resource selection and availability. Further, the analysed frameworks do not support cloud-centric requirements but support classic evaluation requirements.
