On the other hand, a raw Mumps database, such as GT.M, is actually an
interesting beast, as it turns out to provide everything you need to design
and create your own NoSQL (or pretty much any other kind of) database. As
I’ve discussed and mentioned a number of times in these articles, it’s a
Universal NoSQL engine.
The question I’d ask myself is not “why would I build another NoSQL database”, but rather “why none of the popular ones are built using Mumps?”.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
