Oracle Demos MySql 7.3 Cluster with Node.js and Nosql

Oracle demo'd the MySQL Cluster 7.3 at the MySQL Connect conference. MySql is often the leading edge of Oracle's DB development and interestingly they have introduced integration with the open source Node.js JavaScript server.

Currently classed as a Labs feature and not intended for production use, it brings the increasingly popular Google's Node.js V8 engine. This allows server side JavaScript to run on the cluster interface that avoids transformations to SQL which Oracle are offering as their NoSql option to fight off popular MongoDb, CouchDB , Redis Nosql offerings. .

Developers can write JavaScript from desktop to sever using non-blocking I/O that boosts the end users perception of performance. Oracle are offering tutorials on the MySQL blog, the API follows Node.js's asynchronous architecture.
