NoSQL + Node.js + Buzzword Bullshit

From the “Node.js Convincing the boss guide”:

If the architecture for your next apps reads like the cookbook of NoSQL ingredients, please pause for a second and read this.

Yes, Redis, CouchDB, MongoDB, Riak, Casandra, etc. all look really tempting, but so did that red apple Eve couldn’t resist. If you’re already taking a technological risk with using node.js, you shouldn’t multiply it with more technology you probably don’t fully understand yet.

Sure, there are legitimate use cases for choosing a document oriented database. But if you are trying to build a business on top of your software, sticking to conservative database technology (like postgres or mysql) might just outweigh the benefits of satisfying your inner nerd and impressing your friends.

The opposite sounds valid too:

There are legitimate use cases for choosing an evented I/O system running JavaScript. But if you are trying to build a business on top of your software, sticking to conservative servers (like Apache, nginx) and multi-processes/multi-threaded models might just outweigh the benefits of satisfying your inner nerd and impressing your friends.
