Wise words from Sid Anand:
Many of the NoSQL vendors view the “battle of NoSQL” to be akin to the RDBMS battle of the 80s, a winner-take-all battle. In the NoSQL world, it is by no means a winner-take-all battle. Distributed Systems are about compromises.
While there might be some that would like to see a NoSQL battle and at some point money will talk, I hope the real battle will remained centered around the technical aspects and which data solutions solve each specific problem better. The sort of battle in which everyone learns something.
