redis: All content tagged as redis in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
While Amazon Web Services approach is bring-your-own-data to our storage and processing solutions, Rackspace’s strategy seems to be “whatever popular NoSQL storage engine you like, we have your back. Just bring your data“.
Last month Rackspace bought MongoDB hosting provider ObjectRocket and now they acquired Exceptional Cloud Service which brings Redis hosting on board.
It’s difficult to say how well is Amazon’s strategy working as the company doesn’t do a lot to get their customers’ case studies out there—I still need to find a list of 10 companies that are using Amazon Dynamo. But this doesn’t mean a thing. On the other hand, I can see Rackspace’s strategy working and getting a lot of traction considering they’re looking after the most popular NoSQL tools.
✚ The Register writes about this acquisition too: Rackspace gobbles Exceptional Cloud Services for Redis smarts. I assume many others are asking the same question:
So, with Redis and MongoDB due to make their way into the Rackspace cloud proper, what other technologies are catching the web hoster turned cloud whisperer’s eyes?

FnordMetric looks like an interesting library for collecting and visualizing timeseries:
According to the docs, the framework has 3 components:
FnordMetric Classic: a DSL for processing data streams and building web-based dashboards.
It’s built in Ruby and uses Redis.
FnordMetric Enterprise: a JVM-based timeseries databases
My only question is why building a new storage engine for the Enterprise component when there are already so many good tools for doing this. Other than that, I really liked the screenshot.

More service providers for hosted NoSQL solutions:
- Garantia Data to Offer its Redis & Memcached Hosting Services in Europe: “In-memory NoSQL Company extends Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud to European Amazon Web Services users.”
- CloudBird Launch, now with RavenDB 2.0 support - The CloudBird Blog: “Today we’re cracking open the Champagne as we peel off the beta label and officially welcome production databases to our RavenDB hosting service. What’s more we’re also introducing support for the Raven 2.0 RTM.”
It’s not anymore just “a database for every taste”, but steadly becoming more of “a database for every taste served from anywhere you like”,
