NoSQL - will relational alternatives finally catch on?*
A general discussion of NoSQL databases, what they're good for and where they fit in the database world.
We’ve had alternative databases before, but cloud scale computing seems to be changing the rules enough that alternative databases are starting to become an interesting topic again. There are a few NoSQL specific sessions at Open Source Bridge but I’m hoping an open, developer level discussion around the topic might be interesting to people as well. Open Source is clearly the leader in this space with MongoDB, CouchDB, Cassandra, Redis and numerous other systems getting more and more attention from developers.
I’m a software entrepreneur currently living in Phoenix Az but soon moving to Portland Or. My most recent project is JumpBox where I am co-founder and CEO. My primary interests run through Open Source software, virtualization, cloud computing, NoSQL databases and real-time analytics.
