vmware: All content tagged as vmware in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
James Phillips of NorthScale about scaling out with Membase on VMWare (real interview starts at around 1’35”):
Considering Membase is persisting to disk (as opposed to its little brother memcached which is memory only)
, I’m wondering if virtualized environments provide good enough IO.
- As many other DBMS, Membase keeps “hot data” in memory, but it also writes it to disk for durability. (↩)
You have probably heard the ☞ news by now: VMWare has hired Salvatore Sanfilippo (@antirez), creator and main developer of Redis, the key-value store. The very good news about this is that VMWare will allow Salvatore to work full time on Redis and will also help him build a set of Redis Tools that will be open sourced. Congrats Salvatore and VMWare!
