NoSQL News & Links 2010-04-16

  1. Tarek Ziadé: ☞ A Firefox plugin experiment. XUL, Bottle and Redis
  2. Andreas Jung: ☞ Looking beyond one’s own nose - looking at RabbitMQ and MongoDB

    Unsorted remarks on RabbitMQ and MongoDB plus some benchmarks with mass data

  3. Franck Cuny: ☞ presque, a Redis / Tatsumaki based message queue. Perl and Redis baby!
  4. Mark Atwood: ☞ Reacting to “Memcached is not a store”. IMO, it is as much as a store as any dict/hash you’ve been using. Well, a bit more.
  5. okram: ☞ pipes. A lot of activity around graph databases lately:

    Pipes is a graph-based data flow framework written in Java 1.6+. A process graph (also known as a Kahn process network) is composed of a set of process vertices connected to one another by a set of communication edges. Each process can run independent of the others and as such, concurrency is a natural consequence as data is transformed in a pipelined fashion from input to output.

  1. gluecon: ☞ Why the “NoSQL” moniker is useful - for now

    Someone that gets it:

    The NoSQL moniker is, frankly, about as good as it gets for an early adopter technology. Why? Because it’s polarizing. Of course, the engineers hate it — it doesn’t *accurately* describe anything about what’s going on there (in case you haven’t heard, engineers love accuracy and precision). However, when a new technology is gaining ground, marketing matters. And when marketing matters, the BEST thing you can have is a “storyline” that writes itself for the journalists, analysts, etc that will help to distribute these ideas inside of enterprises.

  2. couchdb wiki: ☞ Windows binary installer. Making CouchDB 0.11.0 as easy as for Mac.
  3. Added the 2nd video from the NoSQL Smackdown at SXSW
  4. Seth Chandler: ☞ Building and Installing MongoDB on Ubuntu 10.04. Just a bunch of dependencies that you must install.

  1. Kirk McKusick, Sean Quinlan: ☞ GFS: Evolution on Fast-Forward

    Sounds pretty hackish here and there. But it might be very similar to the whole philosophy behind NoSQL: solve your own problem, come up with a cost effective approach and deliver value to your company.

  2. ☞ Installing MongoDB on Mac OS X using Homebrew.

    As a side note, last week I went through installing CouchDB master on my MacOS and discovered that while Homebrew works pretty well, you’ll still need to hack it from time to time. Plus, having MacPorts installed on the same machine made this process almost impossible.

  3. Loraine Lawson: ☞ The Business Pros and Cons of NoSQL

NoSQL Ecosystem News & Links 2010-03-23

  1. Fredrik Kalseth: ☞ NoSQL: Getting started with MongoDB and NoRM. It was only yesterday, when I told you there are good signs of increased activity in the MongoDB and C# world.
  2. Personal experience: getting CouchDB 0.11 installed on a MacOS with MacPorts seems to be “mission impossible”. With the help of #couchdb guys on IRC I finally got it working, but only after cleaning up (read removing) MacPorts

  1. A short version of NoSQL week in review, after losing the original post.
  2. Nicholas J. Radcliffe: ☞ Alice in FluidDB. The power of tagging.
  3. ☞ A graph theory book by David Joyner, Minh Van Nguyen, and Nathann. Helpful for everyone interested in graph databases.
  4. Jeff Darcy: ☞ Riak and Cassandra. It wasn’t long until someone jumped at/corrected Riak’s comparisons with Cassandra, MongoDB and Neo4j. And now there is a comment on the Basho blog: ☞ The Craft Brewers of NoSQL

    I think the market is still too young and small to see real attacks between the players. But once the market will grow in size, we will unfortunately start seeing some of these. Hopefully, myNoSQL readers will know how to make the difference!

    And the conversation ☞ ends with beers!

  5. Till Klampaeckel: ☞ Redis on Ubuntu (9.04)
  6. Daniel Wertheim: ☞ Simple-MongoDB – Support for Regex and custom Id’s.
    Not sure it’s just an impression but there seems to be a lot of activity on the MongoDB and C# space. Luckily, we have this covered for you:
  7. Salvatore Sanfilippo: ☞ Redis weekly update #2 - Real world hashes, refactoring, and fixes

NoSQL Ecosystem News & Links 2010-03-19

  1. Royans K Tharakan: ☞ Pregel: Google’s other data-processing infrastructure. But we have graph databases and Gremlin. And it looks like Google will finally talk about it at ☞ Sigmod 2010.
  2. Brian Prince: ☞ NoSQL Database Movement Gains Ground as Alternative. Definitely I don’t agree with (just think about how many would benefit from “persistent memcached”):

    Matt Aslett, an analyst with The 451 Group, said that while distributed column stores like Cassandra have found a home in some situations, it’s the document-oriented databases like MongoDB, CouchDB and Riak that hold the most promise for enterprises in the short-term.

  3. William Webber: ☞ NoSQL: Awesome tech with a stupid name. Get over it!. If you don’t like it, don’t use it!
  4. Redis gets a new type: ☞ hashes. Interesting that Redis — a key-value store — is adding more smart data types that would make it even more appealing.
  5. Cyril Mougel: ☞ Oupsnow, an AGPL bug tracker in Rails using MongoDB and .
  6. Dare Obasanjo: ☞ Building Scalable Databases: Are Relational Databases Compatible with Large Scale Websites?:

    The problem with database sharding is that it isn’t really a supported out of the box configuration for your traditional relational database product especially the open source ones. How your system deals with new machines being added to the cluster or handles machine failure often requires special case code being written by application developers along with special hand holding by operations teams. Dealing with issues related to database replication (whether it is multi-master or single master) also often takes up unexpected amounts of manpower once sharding is involved.
