apple: All content tagged as apple in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
Based on a ☞ job announcement, The Register ☞ writes that Apple is probably considering HBase for their iAds platform. Truth being told, the announcement talks about Hadoop and mentions HBase or Cassandra:
- Design and build scalable Hadoop based ETL infrastructure.
- Build modular components in the large volume data movement and management
- Mentor junior engineers in Hadoop based technologies
- Experience with high throughput and scaleable applications etc.
- Designing and implementing systems to processTerabytes to Petabytes of data using Hadoop.
- Extensive experience with MapReduce, HDFS, Hive, HBase Or Cassandra
Maybe it will be this person’s responsibility to come up with the HBase or Cassandra decision.

Anyway, I think there are additional ingredients to be added to the mix to make CouchOne Mobile see some traction:
- becoming rock solid. It is in direct competition with tools like SQLite which are rock solid
- there will be tons of applications that would require synchronization with remote servers. Remember, CouchDB strongest point is replication.
- there will be some good and cheap CouchDB hosting providers. When you sell $1.99 apps, you’ll not pay tons of dollars for hosting.
Update: while this comment from ☞ Damien Katz about CounchDB coming to iOS is pre Apple policy change, it is a good sign that
Couchio CouchOne is trying to get it working as soon as possible:
Aaron Miller and I got Erlang booting up on iOS. CouchDB coming to an Apple device near you.
Update: Six month later iOS Mobile Couchbase is here.
