cloud: All content tagged as cloud in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
When reading it, I’ve jotted down:
- The good: using a combination of cloud and a NoSQL database (Couchbase) allowed OMGPOP to scale
- The bad: OMGPOP had to call in people from Couchbase to help out with scaling
Question is if you can throw in more iron and hire experts wouldn’t many other database solutions be able to cope with OMGPOP’s growth?

No idea how this would work:
ParElastic™ is an elastic database middle-ware that creates a virtual elastic relational database from a collection of unaffiliated, free-running, industry standard relational databases.
But they convinced some investors that it is possible.

Xeround is a new MySQL storage engine offered as Database-as-a-Service.
What it promises sounds (a bit?) too good to be true (nb this list have been extracted from their site):
- seamless replacement of existing MySQL database
- high availability (including schema changes)
- automatic fault-detection and recovery
- full consistency with low latency
What’s the catch?
