NoSQL Databases Come In All Shapes And Sizes
I've been trying to keep up with this technology since it seems to be the future of databases. Last April, I posted an article on Planet Cassandra to introduce the topic of the NoSQL database. Since then there has been a good bit of activity in this arena. As of this writing, I've learned that there are currently 150 NoSQL databases of various types as quoted on the NoSQL Archive site nosql-database.org. This site provides a list of events chronicling the movement of this technology from 2008 through 2011. What I found most intriguing, was the number of different types of databases available. These various type include Document Store, Graph, Grid & Cloud, Multimodel, XML and a others. With these varying types to choose from, a business could find just the right solution for practically any application. Below are a few links for those of you interested in following this technology. How do you think your business could benefit from NoSQL database deployment? Leave a comment to let us know.
