The NoSQL Community Threw Out the Baby With the Bath Water

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:

  1. this is not SQL for NoSQL databases
  2. there’s already Hive for SQL on Hadoop
  3. there’s already Spire from Drawn to Scale for ANSI SQL on Hadoop
  4. there’s already Hadapt for SQL and Hadoop
