Matthew Aslett (The 451 Group):
“NewSQL” is our shorthand for the various new scalable/high performance SQL database vendors.
[…] what they have in common is the development of new relational database products and services designed to bring the benefits of the relational model to distributed architectures, or to improve the performance of relational databases to the extent that horizontal scalability is no longer a necessity.
The list of NewSQL products/companies is very long. I’ve written about some of them, about others I couldn’t find too much information (probably they were in that stealth mode) and there are others I never heard of. But here is the complete list:
- MySQL Cluster with NDB and MySQL with HandlerSocket
- JustOne DB
As much as I hate buzzwords, NewSQL sounds cool.
