Bradford Stephens (CEO Drawn to Scale):
Today, we’re announcing that we’ve ported MongoDB onto Spire as a platform.
What this means is:
- You can easily scale your MongoDB cluster to 200+ TB
- You don’t need to change a line of code in your app to make it scale
- You can use ANSI SQL (yes, joins), Mongo queries, and Hadoop on the same
Just a couple of thoughts:
- the push of NoSQL databases to get SQL support is growing extremely fast. But I still doubt this is happening thanks to the advantages of SQL, but more due to the 30 years of investments in the SQL ecosystem.
- last but not least, what are Ryan Rawson’s thoughts about Drawn to Scale going Mongo.

Monte Zweben interviewed by Gery Menegaz for ZDNet:
“The NoSQL community threw out the baby with the bath water. They
got it right with flexible schemas and distributed, auto-sharded
architectures, but it was a mistake to discard SQL,”
After reading the above, I was ready to file this together with The Time for NoSQL Standards Is Now; which by the way dates from July 2012.
Then it is only the final paragraph that clarifies what Monte Zweben is talking about: a SQL engine for Hadoop. I don’t know if the order makes any difference, but before taking about thrown babies:
- this is not SQL for NoSQL databases
- there’s already Hive for SQL on Hadoop
- there’s already Spire from Drawn to Scale for ANSI SQL on Hadoop
- there’s already Hadapt for SQL and Hadoop
