Mozilla: All content tagged as Mozilla in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
There was one NoSQL conference that I’ve missed and I was really pissed off: Hadoop World. Even if I’ve followed and curated the Twitter feed, resulting in Hadoop World in tweets, the feeling of not being there made me really sad. But now, thanks to Cloudera I’ll be able to watch most of the presentations. Many of them have already been published and the complete list can be found ☞ here.
Based on the twitter activity on that day, I’ve selected below the ones that seemed to have generated most buzz. The list contains names like Facebook, Twitter, eBay, Yahoo!, StumbleUpon, comScore, Mozilla, AOL. And there are quite a few more …
Mozilla has previously published about their detailed plan and extensive investigation into Cassandra, HBase, and Riak that led to choosing Riak. This time they are publishing some extensive Riak benchmark results (against both Riak 0.10 and Riak 0.11 running Bitcask) — they are using Riak benchmarking code, included in the list of correct NoSQL benchmarks and performance evaluations solutions. Both the results, their analysis , and interpretation are fascinating.
Our goal in running these studies was, simply put, no surprises. That meant we needed to run studies to that profiled:
- Stability, especially for long running tests
- Performance when we introduced variable object sizes
- Performance when we introduced pre-commit hooks to evaluate incoming data
I guess Mozilla Test Pilot is one of the Riak’s most interesting case studies.
