NoSQL Week in Review 15

This has been an extremely busy week for the NoSQL space, with important announcements from Digg and Reddit going Cassandra way, but also two NoSQL events: the QCon NoSQL track and the NoSQL Live in Boston. There seems to have been a couple more debates online about NoSQL and RDBMS, but I’ll need a bit of time to catch up with those before commenting anything.

What’s Hot in the NoSQL World

  1. Priority Queue with Barbershop and Redis
  2. MySQL and MongoDB Sitting In a Boat
  3. Digg Going The Cassandra Way
  4. Operations on Graph Databases
  5. CTO of 10gen, MongoDB creators: We are sort of similar to MySQL or PostgreSQL in terms of how you could use us

New NoSQL Releases

I might have lost track of the releases happening in the NoSQL space this week, but here is what I got:

  • Redis released two bug fix versions (1.2.4 and 1.2.5) this last week
  • Riak released version 0.9.0 and the very next day a quick bug fix release (0.9.1)

NoSQL Week in Review

  • NoSQL Week in Review 14

    “It looks like I’ve made it to the 14th edition of the NoSQL week in review, even if I was a bit sick lately and also missed a reliable internet connection for the last days.

If you still have some time once you’ve gone through all these, you might also take a look at ☞ Rick Cattell’s paper on NoSQL stores and also the Guide to NoSQL systems published by ☞ Nathan Hurst, both providing some sort of overview of the NoSQL space (nb none of them is perfect, but that doesn’t make them less interesting).

Have a great NoSQL week!
