Although there will be isolated examples, it is going to be rare, therefore, that any potential adopter would be directly comparing NoSQL and NewSQL technologies unless they are still at the stage trying to figure out the level of consistency required for an individual application.
I believe that the future will bring these technologies together so being aware of their pros and cons will be essential. Categorizing all of storage and processing engines just from the level of consistency perspective is like saying there’s only transactional data out there. We all know that’s not true at all.
