What part of NoSQL don't you understand?
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In the word "NoSQL", the letters "No" are an acronym so the meaning is "Not Only SQL" rather than "No SQL". True or false?

Historically, it's false

The first NoSQL product was a classic DBMS which didn't happen to use SQL for a query language, featured in Linux Journal in 1999. Its current web page has a traffic-sign symbol of the word SQL with a bar through it, and a title "NoSQL: a non-SQL RDBMS".

For a meetup in June 2009 about "open source, distributed, non-relational databases" the question came up "What's a good name?" Eric Evans of Rackspace suggested NoSQL, a suggestion which

MySQLNoSQLCloud 2014 – Edition #3
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’ve enjoyed visiting Buenos Aires once a year for the MySQLNoSQLCloud event, put together by the awesome people at Binlogic (in particular, their proprietor Santiago Lertora). It’s happening again in 2014, which by my count is the third edition, and there’s a twist: Buenos Aires on 13 & 14 November, and Cordoba on 17 November. It’s never been held in Cordoba before (like an annex event), so I think this could be extremely exciting.

If you’re looking to speak, send Santiago a note at events@binlogic.com (or leave a message here). I’ll put you in touch with him. If you’re looking to sponsor, you get attendees from all over Latin

My experience with node and mongodb course "M101JS: MongoDB for Node.js Developers" (Third Week)
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Well, currently I am into the third week of mongodb node course "M101JS: MongoDB for Node.js Developers" and I am pretty enjoying it.

Lots of personal learning into node and mongodb.

The third week subject of "Patterns, Case Studies & Tradeoffs" is really interesting.

Here is a list of topics, I learned about:
- Mongodb rich documents concept.
- Mongodb schema use cases.
- Mongodb one:one, one:many, many:many use cases.
- How to select schema based on the usage like whether you want max performance
  or it may be a tradeoff.

One important point, I learned during the course is:
"While relational databases usually go for the normalised 3rd form so that data usage is agnostic to application, but mongodb schema arrangement is very closely related to application usage and varies accordingly."
SQL & NoSQL, The Best of Both Worlds with MySQL Cluster – webinar replay now available
Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I recently presented a webinar explaining how you can enjoy the key benefits of NoSQL data stores without giving up all of the great features provided by a mature RDBMS.

In case you weren’t able to attend (or wanted to refresh your memory) then the webinar replay and charts (http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/web-seminars/sql-nosql-the-best-of-both-worlds-with-mysql-cluster/" target="blank) are now available.

There’s often a lot of excitement around NoSQL Data Stores with the promise of simple access patterns, flexible schemas, scalability and High Availability. The downside can come in the form of losing ACID transactions,

On PostgreSQL. Interview with Bruce Momjian.

“There are four things that motivate open source development teams:
1. The challenge/puzzle of programming, 2. Need for the software, 3. Personal advancement, 4. Belief in open source”
— Bruce Momjian.

On PostgreSQL and the challenges of motivating and managing open source teams, I have interviewed Bruce Momjian, Senior Database Architect at EnterpriseDB, and Co-founder of the PostgreSQL Global Development Group and Core Contributor.

Q1. How did you manage to transform PostgreSQL from an abandoned academic project into a commercially viable, now enterprise relational database?

I’m speaking at OUG Scotland this week
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down


If you’re going to be near Edinburgh this week then consider registering for OUG Scotland. I’ll be presenting on how to acheive the benefits of NoSQL (scalability, HA, ease of use. simple APIs) while at the same time still benefiting from the RDBMS features people have grown to rely on (ACID transactions, rich schemas, flexible access patterns) – the presentation will be at 11:25 on Wednesday as part of the developers’ track.

Hint for those that can’t make it – MySQL Cluster is the key

Still the best way to explain NoSQL

Those in the MySQL/Drizzle world have probably seen this a bunch of times before, but I think it still holds up (now five years later) as one of the best NoSQL explanations around.

MySQL & NoSQL – Best of Both Worlds. Upcoming webinar
Employee +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On Thursday 22nd May I’ll be hosting a webinar explaining how you can get the best from the NoSQL world while still getting all of the benefits of a proven RDBMS. As always the webinar is free but please register here (http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/web-seminars/sql-nosql-the-best-of-both-worlds-with-mysql-cluster/" target="blank).

There’s often a lot of excitement around NoSQL Data Stores with the promise of simple access patterns, flexible schemas, scalability and High Availability. The downside can come in the form of losing ACID transactions, consistency, flexible queries and data integrity checks. What if you could have the best of both worlds?

Background: If you did not read my first blog post about why I am sharing my thoughts on the benchmarks published by Mark Callaghan on Small Datum you may want to skim through it now for a little context: Thoughts on Small Datum – Part 1”

Last time, in Thoughts on Small Datum – Part 2 I shared my cliff notes and a graph on Mark Callaghan’s (@markcallaghan) March 11th insertion rate benchmarks using flash storage media. In those tests he compares MySQL (http://www.mysql.com/) outfitted with the

Eventual consistency of NoSQL marketing
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Yesterday I learnt an important lesson about an important difference between NoSQL and MySQL, at least when it comes to the marketing and hype.

I saw a tweet from around marketing of one of NoSQL leaders:

Most people apparently would just conclude from the tweet's text, however I actually clicked the link, and couldn't believe eyes:

I guess that in NoSQL, when it comes to the integrity of data as well as hype - it is eventually consistent...
