Last week most read posts about NoSQL databases
- NoSQL Frankfurt: A Quick Review of the Conference: the title says it all, a review of the NoSQL conference in Frankfurt.
- What Can We Learn from JPMorgan Database Outage?. We don’t have answers for everything, but sometimes even the right questions can help.
- MongoDB: Agile + Scaling: an involved (technical!) VC opinion on MongoDB advantanges.
- Learning MongoDB: assorted notes from a guy learning MongoDB (this is the 2nd part talking about replica sets, sharding, etc.)
- Riak in the Cloud with Joyent SmartMachines: usually vendor benchmarks are not so useful, but this one looks really interesting. Plus it was performed in a virtualized environment.
My favorities from last week in NoSQL databases
- NoSQL Databases and The Unix Philosophy: some say that what NoSQL databases are offering is too little. I do have a different opinion.
- NoSQL: 3 Things to Watch: in fact quite a few more things you should consider before saying I’m going NoSQL
- NoSQL: The Alternative to MySQL Sharding: some (and there are quite a few) problem you can run into when scaling MySQL
- Alternatives to Database Transactions: database transactions are not the only solution.
- Hadoop Usecase: Figting Spam in Big Data: dealing with spam is one of the 10 problems that you could use Hadoop for
- Membase Success Story: Zynga: during a busy week they can add 1000 new servers. Many of these are running Membase.
