NoSQL Week in Review 9

I think this was the most active week since the debut of MyNoSQL and our NoSQL week in review. Being caught in a couple of long all day meetings, I have missed a couple of these, so I thought we should start with a short review of the most important events:

  1. Dr. Eric Brewer, the promoter of the CAP theorem, has joined the Board of Directors of Basho, makers of Riak. [1]
  2. As we anticipated last week, Project Voldemort has launched a new version, 0.70, the first including online rebalancing. [2]
  3. Redis Virtual Memory complete implementation is now committed and undergoing extensive tests.
  4. After last week dev release, MongoDB has pushed a new stable release: 1.2.2 [3]
  5. Basho has released Riak 0.7.1, a minor bugfix version. [4]
  6. Terrastore, probably the youngest document database tracked on MyNoSQL, has announced a new version: 0.4. [5]
  7. Yahoo has published a testing framework for NoSQL systems [6]. We will take a look together at the results here on MyNoSQL.

While all these are extremely interesting, let’s also see what the NoSQL community considered hot last week here on MyNoSQL:

What’s Hot in the NoSQL World

  1. Practical tips for using SimpleDB
  2. Release: HBase 0.20.3 brings 84 bug fixes and improvements
  3. Applying Amdhal’s Law to Hadoop Provisioning
  4. Characterizing Enterprise Systems using the CAP theorem
  5. Software Patents, MapReduce and Open Source

It came as a surprise that what is probably the most exciting Cassandra release in quite a while hasn’t made it to the top. I really hope the Cassandra community will get together and start being more present. It is one of the most important column stores used at Digg and Twitter (teaser: I am preparing a surprise here) and I am pretty sure that the NoSQL community would like to hear much more than it is currently available.

I’d encourage the Tokyo Cabinet users to bookmark this post: Tokyo Cabinet Database Recovery as it might prove useful at a later point.

New NoSQL Releases

As I prefaced this edition of the NoSQL week in review, there were quite a few NoSQL releases announced the last couple of days:

This is definitely a record and it will be a while until we can mention so many exciting releases within a single week.

NoSQL Week in Review

Have a great NoSQL week!
