I expect not much in the short term, until some key issues are solved. First, the sources and consumers of data are still on-site. These guys are tackling a specific technical limitation, not necessarily looking to re-architect their wider systems, which are often complex and inter-dependent. Second, security and regulatory concerns may need addressing. Third, the TCO needs to stack up. A quick and dirty back of the envelope calculation suggests that although it’s free to get started with DynamoDB, for the sort of deployment sizes we’re seeing, DynamoDB works out considerably more expensive than alternatives like Acunu deployed on hardware (even after accounting for typical full costing for outsourced data centers).
Keeping my eyes on all things NoSQL for more than 2 years, I’d say that NoSQL databases in general do not mean much for the enterprise world2. Yet.
