What NoSQL technology(s) are you interested in?

mongodb, couchdb, redis

Do you currently use an RDBMS?

Yes. Currently mysql, previously postgresql and oracle.

If you currently use an RDBMS, what problems are you having with it?

I've always dreaded the old problem (name escapes me now) of mapping to and from in-memory objects (especially ones with deep structures which contain collections of other objects) and tables. Also dealing with hierarchical data in RDBMSs can be both a pain or slow.


I'm a software engineer whose only database work experience involves RDBMSs although I've played around at home with some NoSQL stuff at home.
