The Disruptive Value of Distributed Key-Value Stores

Martin Schneider (Basho):

Organizations with specific needs best met by a platform like Riak could save a company:

  • Millions of dollars in oracle license/maintenance
  • Hundreds of thousands a year in BI system license/maintenance
  • Up to hundreds of thousands in sys-admin salary/overhead

This sounds correct in theory. But the last couple of Oracle databases I’ve seen were:

  1. serving multiple applications
  2. sharing data between applications
  3. used for generating tens/hundreds of reports

So, the online storage/OLTP costs equation to beat is:

licenses + operational costs + “data integration costs” + etl + reporting « licenses + operational costs
