Last week most read posts about NoSQL databases
As you could expect the top news this week where about MongoDB Auto-sharding and Foursquare Downtime and then Foursquare MongoDB Outage Post Mortem. And I think there will be some more on this topic in the upcoming week.
- MapReduce and Hadoop Future: does Google Caffeine announcement make any difference to MapReduce and/or Hadoop future? A somehow related question is if Michael Stonebraker was right about MapReduce?
- Cassandra: Modeling A Facebook-Style Messenger: I said it before: from all NoSQL databases, the wide-column model is probably the most complex, so every examples and tutorial we can get they’ll prove useful.
- Why Enterprises Are Uninterested in NoSQL: two things are sure: 1/ Michael Stonebraker has a long history in the data space and 2/ his posts are generating lots of waves
- MongoDB: A ToDo App with Ruby and PHP: MongoDB practical language tutorials.
- Big Data from Sensor Networks: want some impressive numbers that we’ll have to deal with in the BigData era?
My favorites from last week in NoSQL databases
- Neo4j Usecases in Telecom Space: usecases and case studies are the way to learn. And using the graph databases model requires a mind shift.
- Correction: OrientDB is a Document and Graph Store: not only because I got this wrong the first time, but it actually makes OrientDB sound interesting.
- Redis: Thoughts and Counter-Thoughts:
- HBase: Unit Testing Applications: as NoSQL databases adoption growth, we’ll need this more and more. Some are even a bit paranoid about their NoSQL databases (nb not necessarily a bad thing though).
