A look at the state of data storage, management & analysis, from SQL
to NOSQL, “NewSQL” and beyond. I will explain why the core premises of
data management have changed; tell some of the tales of success and failure I have collected on the topic; share some
counterintuitive rules-of-thumb about the sometimes mind-blowing,
sometimes nerve-wrecking reality of life with an alternative
The popularity of NoSQL opens up an endless array of possible uses but also causes its own set of problems. Riak, a NoSQL offering created by Basho solves this by claiming to have no single point of failure. Proving this goes a long way to dispelling the concerns within an enterprise to begin adopting a non-relational solution.
This panel discussion features the key innovators in the NoSQL space.
The Basho engineering team has been working to make Riak more queryable with the addition of built-in indexing plus a SQL-style query language. In this talk, Rusty describes the usage, benefits, limitations, and evolution of this this functionality, called Secondary Indices. He also covers the challenges and pitfalls of adding indexing to a distributed datastore.
