Oracle NoSQL database: All content tagged as Oracle NoSQL database in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
The main things that helped were: very clean and simple APIs, set of Java tools we could use for it, very, very easy to setup up, good GUI administration tools. All the things you perhaps wouldn’t get if you’d look to an open source solution (nb: my emphasis).
You’d perhaps be amazed of what you can find in open source solutions like say Riak or this newcomer. No need to bash open source tools in general.
EngineYard’s Ines Sombra recorded a conversation with Mathias Meyer about NoSQL databases and their evolution towards more friendlier functionality, relational databases and their steps towards non-relational models, and a bit more on what polyglot persistence means.
Mathias Meyer is one of the people I could talk for days about NoSQL and databases in general with different infrastructure toppings and he has some of the most well balanced thoughts when speaking about this exciting space—see this conversation I’ve had with him in the early days of NoSQL. I strongly encourage you to download the mp3 and listen to it.
