When I was looking for a more effective way to create my cluster I asked some sysadmins which tools I should use to do it. The answer I got during OSDC was not Puppet, nor Chef, but was Ansible.
Today, FoundationDB announced the availability of their "ACID compliant, high-performance NoSQL database platform."
Eric Redmond presents on distributed patterns you should know at NoSQL Matters.
This is a 1h20m presentation by Justin Sheehy, CTO of Basho Technologies, that is focused on Riak and NoSQL solutions.
Here's a 50-minute presentation on HBase Schema Design from the NoSQL Matters conference.
Over the past few years, there has been an emergence and growth in database providers. From this many questions have arisen for application developers from enterprises to start-ups . . .
From the NoSQL Matters conference, here's a presentation by Michael Hunger of Neo Technology that focuses on data modeling with Neo4j.
Today, you can start printing firearms by backing a Kickstarter campaign for a cheap 3D printer. Also, Martin Fowler tells a joke.
Scripted Index Results (I wish it would have a better name) is a really interesting new feature in RavenDB 2.5.
This presentation from NoSQL matters focuses on Aerospike, Cassandra, Couchbase, and MongoDB.
Here's a 1/2-hour presentation from Neo Technology focused on graph databases and how they are relevant to trends in the video gaming industry.
Since I work as part of the engineering team at Couchbase, I need to run my code against a variety of server deployments.
I have patched up a MariaDB version with JSON support, just for the fun of it. This is not the best version of MariaDB around, as I am not a MariaDB developer . . .
The latest M03 milestone release of Neo4j 2.0 is as you expected all about improvements to Cypher.
One of the nice things about having more realistic demo data set is that we can now actually show demos on that data.
Being schemaless doesn't mean you will never have to migrate data between the implicit schemas with which data is represented inside NoSQL databases such as MongoDB. Even when leaving in place code that works with multiple versions of data and provide a smooth transition between the old and new formats, indexes provide an example of operation to be performed once and for all and that is mostly put outside of the code the database supports.
In the wake of last Tuesday's Neo4j 1.9 GA release, the Neo4j community released a number of dependent ecosystem projects for Neo4j 1.9 to the Neo4j Maven repository
For a year and a half I've been part of the team maintaining PyMongo, the Python MongoDB driver. It's one of the most widely used Python packages with 1.5 million lifetime downloads.
For RavenDB 2.5, we updated the sample data to use the brand new and amazing (wait for it…) Northwind database.
There's a lot of bad advice out there regarding MongoDB. As I wrote in my last review, even smart sources can encourage risky methods.
RAM is much faster than hard disks. For example, we gained X7 performance boost when we used MySQL In Memory engine rather than InnoDB engine.
I was chatting with Brian Blignaut last week after the Equal Experts NoSQL event and he made an interesting observation that in this age of Polyglot Persistence we often rule out the relational database.
This is part 2 (of 2) of my Programming VoltDB – Easy, Flexible and Ultra-fast series
Graph Databases have long been the realm of highly technical IT development professionals.
This video from 2011 may be a little old, but it offers a strong overview of the features of Apache Cassandra.
