From Big Data to NoSQL: Part 3 (ReadWriteWeb.com)

While I am not a DB admin, I do appreciate the wealth of new database projects spawned by the likes of Google’s MapReduce/BigTables architecture. Similarly the non-traditional Nonrelational DBs are also very interesting and prove that there’s always a right tool for the right job. Though some programmers and developers will continuously try to hammer each nail with MySQL, there options for them are increasing. Whether it’s scale, load, malleability there’s a NoSQL/NewSQL product that will do the job.
