The database landscape is evolving as new, scalable data stores emerge. Key value stores, large tabular stores, document-oriented databases, and graph databases offer a compelling alternative to the traditional relational database. By removing joins and loosening ACID constraints, this new class of non-relational or “NoSQL” solutions gain the ability to scale horizontally. In addition, NoSQL solutions offer interesting alternatives to the traditional relational data model.
This panel discussion features the key innovators in the NoSQL space. We will introduce attendees to the key concepts required to understand and evaluate NoSQL data stores, including the CAP Theorem, consistency models, NoSQL data models, and approaches to scaling. We’ll explore relevant use cases and compare and contrast the many open source NoSQL solutions.
