They say: "Relational Databases Aren't Dead"
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This is a good read, claiming: "Relational Databases Aren't Dead. Heck, They're Not Even Sleeping", http://readwrite.com/2013/03/26/relational-databases-far-from-dead. A key quote:
"While not comprehensive, the uses for NoSQL databases center around the acquisition of fast-growing data or data that does not easily fit within uniform structures."
There were 2 parts in the statement about NoSQL's uses. I'll start with the latter:


"data that does not easily fit within uniform …

During the second half of our CUBE discussion with Wikibon analyst Jeff Kelly at this year’s Strata Conference in Santa Clara, we talked about the tipping point for Big Data. Strata veterans could see at a glance that this year’s conference was markedly different. No longer the exclusive domain of geeks and database administrators, this year’s Strata featured some of the biggest enterprise vendors around. With heavy weight enterprise players Intel and EMC Greenplum announcing their own …

MySQL and MongoDB – Strata Discussion with Jeff Kelly of Wikibon (Part 1)
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We had the opportunity to do a CUBE interview with Wikibon analyst Jeff Kelly at last week’s Strata Conference in Santa Clara. In the first part of our conversation, we discuss how our success in integrating Tokutek’s Fractal Tree® technology into MySQL has led us to another popular database, MongoDB. We explain the results of our recent benchmarking tests with MongoDB, which indicate that adding indexing can also …

MongoDB + Fractal Tree Indexes = High Compression
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One doesn’t have to look far to see that there is strong interest in MongoDB compression. MongoDB has an open ticket from 2009 titled “Option to Store Data Compressed” with Fix Version/s planned but not scheduled. The ticket has a lot of comments, mostly from MongoDB users explaining their use-cases for the feature. For example, Khalid Salomão notes that “Compression would be very good to …

NoSQL is Great, But You Still Need Indexes
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve said it before, and, as is the nature of these things, I’ll almost certainly say it again: your database performance is only as good as your indexes.

That’s the grand thesis, so what does that mean? In any DB system — SQL, NoSQL, NewSQL, PostSQL, … — data gets ingested and organized. And the system answers queries. The pain point for most users is around the speed to answer queries. And the query speed (both latency and throughput, to be exact) depend on how the data is organized. In short: Good Indexes, Fast Queries; Poor …

Neither fish nor fowl: the rise of multi-model databases
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One of the most complicated aspects of putting together our database landscape map was dealing with the growing number of (particularly NoSQL) databases that refuse to be pigeon-holed in any of the primary databases categories.

I have begun to refer to these as “multi-model databases” in recognition of the fact that they are able to take on the characteristics of multiple databases. In truth though there are probably two different groups of products that could be considered “multi-model”:

True …

NoSQL with MySQL's Memcached API
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One of our training courses has a section covering MySQL's Memcached API, and how it works. In the discussion, there's a line that goes like this:

 "A key is similar to a primary key in a table, and a value is similar to a second column in the same table"

For someone well versed in database tables but not so much in key-value stores, that sentence might take a bit of grasping. So, let's break it down.

An Example Key/Value Store 

Imagine the table kvstore has a column key and a column value. Also imagine that we've set up the Memcached plugin in MySQL and configured it to use that table and those columns …
