A couple of interesting thoughts about the NoSQL market from a long-time Oracle and MySQL DBA, Sean Hull:
There’s a lot to be excited about in this new realm of db, and some
interesting bigger trends that are pushing things in a new way.
You don’t need to agree with all of these. Nor do you have to consider that they are all true. But it’s almost always useful to understand how your audience is seeing things.
✚ This reminded me of the series of posts, another long-time DBA wrote after he made the jump: part 1, part 2, and part 3.
