Individual databases have different strengths and weaknesses, and two important broad database categories are “relational” (SQL) and “non-relational” (NoSQL/Not-Only-SQL). The two frameworks are increasingly crossing over with each other but the two principally model data differently — offering either acute integrity or agile scalability.
The term NoSQL was originally intended to describe databases that do not use Structured Query Language. However, that term has evolved since its first use back in the 90s. In this article, Alex Williams explores key benefits of NoSQL databases and when to use them.
Do you use SQL or NoSQL databases for time series data? There are a number of significant differences, advantages, and disadvantages between the two. In this article, you will learn all about the differences between SQL and noSQL databases, as well as the differences for time series use cases.
As the end of the year approaches, we took some time to talk to John Pocknell, senior solutions product manager at Quest Software, about his vision of the future. We talk about database management, database automation, the rise of NoSQL and the evolving role of the database administrator or DBA.
In this session, JAX London speakers Joram Barrez and Paul Holmes-Higgin show how we have achieved a native integration of open source BPM to MongoDB and its potential with the established relational implementations.
No need to choose between a rock and a hard place! Developers looking for an open source NoSQL database with consistently low latencies and high performance can set sail towards Scylla. Scylla 3.0 is an open source alternative to Apache Cassandra with a whole boatload of new features. Let’s explore!
Looking for an Eclipse framework to bring your Java apps into NoSQL databases? In this article, Otávio Gonçalves de Santana explores why Eclipse JNoSQL is such a good tool for integration with its one API, many databases approach.
Couchbase and the dynamics of the NoSQL market: “There is life beyond analytical and relational databases”
2017 has been an interesting year in the NoSQL space. The big data market is full of opportunities but there are also a lot of changes happening right now. We talked with Perry Krug, Principal Architect at Couchbase about the future of the NoSQL space, the market dynamics and what’s next for Couchbase.
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.
Who’s the sheriff in today’s data centre wild west? Postgres advocate Pierre Fricke looks at the risks that NoSQL will pose in years to come, while doing his best to deflate the Hadoop hype.
Lukas Eder rounds up this year’s favourite DB engines for SQL and NoSQL, with a change of ranks amongst the new list. Cassandra and Redis have surged their way into the Top 10, but who have they replaced? Read on to find out.
Nowhere else are business decisions as hype-oriented as in IT. And while NoSQL is all well and good, MySQL is often the sensible choice in terms of operational cost and scalability, says JAX London speaker Aviran Mordo.
The cloud has changed everything. And yet the cloud revolution at the heart of IT is only getting started. As data becomes more and more important, we’re beginning to realise how central a role the database will play in future.
Although Facebook famously ditched Cassandra to use HBase for its messenger service, the NoSQL database remains largely overlooked. Ubeeko CEO Ghislain Mazars takes a look under the hood of HBase features.
