Wayfair Testing MongoDB's Super-Hyper-Fast Competitor

So when we heard about a new database platform called ‘/dev/null’, we became pretty excited. We can’t post a link, because it’s in a very private beta testing phase, but we can assure you that the stealth-mode startup that’s working on it is supported by a pair of high-class Silicon Valley VCs. The technology is supposed to be too cutting-edge for stodgy Boston, so we felt pretty lucky to be included.

Today’s today.

Neo Technology Spin-Off: NullDB

Neo Technology PR:

NullDB uses a patent pending null data model that provides performance and scalability never before seen or even considered for Big Data applications. Its ability to retrieve nothing is unmatched by any known database.

Because today’s today.

Not Every NoSQL Parody Is Good… This One’s Terrible

You’ve probably seen it … even TechCrunch posted it. But the fact that NoSQL is getting more popular these days and that there was a good and funny video at some point, doesn’t mean that every video trying to be funny mentioning NoSQL is cool. This one is terrible. Maybe I could give it a vote for the effort of making it rhyme. Other than that, it’s definitely not worth your time.

Coolest Hadoop Cluster?

I don’t know which is the most powerful Hadoop cluster—I’d speculate that Facebook’s, but I’m not sure. What I am sure though is that below it’s the coolest Hadoop cluster I’ve seen:

"Data Is" or "Data Are"?

Paul M. Davis:

“Data is” or “data are”? It’s the type of sticky linguistic thicket that invites vociferous debate. […] I generally err towards “data are”, if for no other reason than to avoid angry email from data and/or grammar geeks.

Make sure you don’t miss the link to Simon Rogers’s post on Datablog looking into this same topic.

As for myself and this blog, I’ve made the (un)educated decision a while back to go with “data is” (based only on the fact that it sounds better).

MoreSQL: No More NoSQL

We at MoreSQL believe in the following axioms:

  1. Universal Applicability: there is no such thing as a problem which cannot be solved with relational databases. It doesn’t matter what you’re storing or how you need to use it. Tabular structures (which may or may not be linked via foreign keys) are the only way to go. End of discussion.

  2. Ends Justify Means: as corollary to axiom 1, we will do whatever it takes to make SQL work for us. Views, stored procedures, cross-database calls: you name it, we’ll do it. Oh and by the way, using ORMs does not mean that you’re trying to shove a round peg into a square hole. They are beautiful and enchanting, OK?

  3. Scale, shmale: relational databases can scale well enough. I mean, Facebook is running on MySQL, for crying out loud! Are you better than Facebook and its 10 trillion active users? I didn’t think so.

I’ve already tattooed myself with MoreSQL and I’m distributing printed leaflets with the axioms in all major squares in town.
