No matter how good Cloud Build might look on paper, no product is flawless and Google’s new CI/CD service is no exception. We talked to Robert Reeves, Chief Technology Officer of Datical about the project’s flaws, the importance of giving the database team the attention it deserves and more.
Want to manage your databases with Google Cloud Platform, but you’re still a big PostgreSQL fan? Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL is now generally available, making database management easier than ever.
Less than a year since its 1.0 release, CockroachDB comes back with the release of its 2.0 version and, trust me, it looks really promising. Here, we have a look at all the new features.
A crucial part of microservices is automation. Being able to “set it and forget it” makes it easier for teams to release production ready applications on time. However, recent research shows that manual deployment causes significant delays in the deployment release schedule.
What technologies are you interested in this year? The goal of our annual survey is to find out which languages, frameworks and tools are particularly exciting for you in 2018. Have a say in this year’s trends!
In this article, Mark Vollmary talks about native multi-model databases and introduces ArangoDB. If you want to know how ArangoDB integrates with Java, look no further.
Built to reduce the learning curve for developers and DBAs working in next-gen database environments, Toad Edge is a flexible toolset for developing and managing open source databases. We talked to Greg Davoll, Software Product Leader at Quest Software, about the growth of open source technologies and why Toad Edge helps bridge the gap between DevOps and database development.
Databases might not seem that interesting, but that’s all about to change. Today, we’re taking a good look at a new database on the scene, PumpkinDB. Although this new event sourcing database engine is just getting started, we’re fascinated by what we can see so far.
Over the years DBAs have been trying hard to keep databases humming while minimizing downtime and transaction errors. Although their achievements should not be ignored, we are now entering an age where they shouldn’t have to be so clever in dealing with a tangled web of hardware and database fragments.
RethinkDB announced the release of an official Java client driver. The library implements RethinkDB’s query language and lets developers send queries to a RethinkDB cluster. Java developers can use the new client driver with RethinkDB to build real-time web applications, sending queries to the database and receiving live updates as the output changes.
MongoDB is making claims that it’s a “schemaless database” because it’s a JSON-style data store. But does that really make it schemaless? And what does “schemaless” even mean anyway?
The need to operate terabyte-size databases becomes very common these days. Unless you have implemented architectures that use NoSQL databases and frameworks that support data-intensive distributed applications, then many technology options available are difficult to understand. This session focuses on real-world successful attempts to benchmark four of the most popular NoSQL databases side by side. The base tool selected for the purpose of this research is Yahoo Cloud Serving Benchmark and benchmarking is performed on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud instances. We will benchmark MongoDB, Cassandra, HBase, and Riak in their default configuration, with tuned client and server side settings and we measure performance of them on 7 types of workloads.

A look at some of the design and implementation strategies you can employ when building a Neo4j-based graph database solution, including architectural choices, data modelling, and testing. Filmed at JAX London 2013.
Much has been made of scalability as a driver for choosing a database, but the choice of a database influences much more than the scaling architecture. Different database choices drive different data models which in turn influence the development process. In this talk, Dwight Merriman, founder and CEO of 10gen and a core MongoDB committer, draws on his experiences from DoubleClick, where he was founder and CTO, as well as his experiences founding Gilt Groupe, ShopWiki, and Business Insider, to discuss how the influence of the database on the development process and how making the right database choices can allow agile development. This keynote was filmed at JAX London 2013.
