IT decision-makers need to become familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of non-relational systems so they can make informed decisions as to their possible place in the IT infrastructure. The “one size fits all” RDBMS has made database technology decisions relatively easy; in a hybrid future, picking the right database tool may become more complex.
It usually takes a while for everyone to accept new technologies and understand their benefits. Sometimes it’s 2 years, sometimes is more. However, some of the NoSQL databases are here to stay. And Hadoop is completing the slope of enlightenment.
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.
