2010/05/17 13:57 Steven Algieri MongoDB and Morphia Performance Internally we've been looking at using for a number of projects. Of course one of the areas of concern when moving to to a NoSQL data store is performance and accessibility. To this end, I started looking at how best to persist our Java Objects in MongoDB. There were a number of options to consider: , , , ,
2010/07/12 14:10 Richard Donovan New NoSQL entrant MemBase .. looks hot !! As regular readers, and our customers will know, we've been quite smitten with NoSQL databases, and MongoDB in particular, for quite some times. The combination of speed and flexibility perfectly matches the type of problems we solve on a daily basis. SQL DB's such MySQL, Oracle or MS SQL would provide limited scaling in these sorts of problems. , , ,
2010/10/15 14:56 Steven Algieri Morphia and Mongo Revisited Back in May, we took at look at a promising Mongo DAO called Morphia. At the time, we concluded that it may not be ready for prime-time, but as with all things (hopefully) things improve. We had sometime this week to revisit the results, hook up the newest versions and try again. , ,
2011/02/09 13:45 Steven Algieri NoSQL Merger - CouchOne + Membase = CouchBase Exciting new yesterday, as it was announced that two big open source NoSQL heavyweights had decided to join forces. Both teams showed that they were each dominant in seperate but complimentary areas of the database space. We can really see the synergies from where we sit, having worked with a number of NoSQL solutions for a while. , , ,
2011/08/02 01:08 Richard Donovan NoSql gets a new Query Language - Unql While dramatically faster for inserts and retrieval NoSql can be very frustrating executing more complex queries, easily performed by their relational cousins. Now the developers of CouchDB and SQLite comes a new query language specification, UnQL (pronounced , , , ,
2012/02/02 01:00 Richard Donovan Old SQL is now New SQL with Google's MoreSql Perhaps paving the way for traditional SQL Vendors, Google's researchers published a paper describing Tenzing, a query engine built on top of MapReduce. Remarkably for Google this is a less disruptive technology since Tenzing supports a mostly complete SQL language syntax with some extensions. , , ,
2012/10/08 05:01 Richard Donovan 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. , , , ,
2013/06/04 05:36 Richard Donovan Disrupting the distrupters, migrating from MongoDB to Cassandra In Sun Tzu terms tech is like fighting in a marsh, where you have to keep moving or sink. It wasn't that long that MongoDb was the disruptive technology. Now a blizzard of noSql db's are disrupting the disrupters. Google's Sergio Bossa the reasoning for moving from MongoDB to Cassandra: , ,
