NoSQL Wants To Be Elastic Caching When It Grows Up… Does It Really?

While I’d probably love having the talent to write such ☞big statements, I’d still prefer to get things right firstly:

Elastic Caching Platforms Are KV Stores On Steroids

[…]

NoSQL Wants To Be Elastic Caching When It Grows Up

[…]

Say “Yes” To Elastic KV Stores In Your Architecture

I confess that I see this whole NoSQL and Elastic caching discussion quite differently, as right now it looks to me that elastic caching is the one missing features (especially persistence) and not the other way around. So maybe, Mike Gaultieri, the author of the above quotes, meant the opposite: elastic caching will become NoSQL when it grows up.

Update: Jeff Darcy (@Obdurodon) ☞ is at it again with a much more detailed comment than I could come up with.

I’m not saying that IMDGs (nb: in memory data grids) aren’t valuable. They can be a very valuable part of an application’s computation or communication model. When it comes to that same application’s storage model, though, IMDGs are irrelevant and shouldn’t be presented as alternatives to various kinds of storage.
