InfoGrid and NoSQL

Johannes Ernst uses these 4 NoSQL criteria to discuss how ☞ InfoGrid fits the NoSQL world:

  • InfoGrid does not use SQL-the-language.
  • InfoGrid uses a graph database model, not a tabular model, …
  • InfoGrid relaxes ACID. No truly distributed system that I know of has ever had ACID properties, nor wanted them. Too many things can go wrong.
  • InfoGrid uses the “small pieces loosely joined” paradigm, not a top-down paradigm.

I guess one could argue that Johannes came up with those factors to make sure that InfoGrid scores well, but I don’t think that was his intention.
