The Real-Time Cure: Slow and Steady

The Big Data space is flooded with buzzwords, and “real-time” has become a staple adjective when touting the advantages of Big Data technologies. However, very few companies have successfully articulated the true economic value of ad-hoc data analysis. While the prospect of speed-of-thought analytics appears attractive, there are actually many indicators that speed sacrifices quality.

It can no longer be ignored: slow is the new fast.

A trend a missed, but it totally makes sense. At least today.

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).
