Join us for a presentation by Noah Kriegel about NoSQL databases.
The four decade undisputed reign of relational databases is rapidly coming to an end and non-relational databases (often referred to as NoSQL) are gaining ground. But with the proliferation of NoSQL options comes differences in storage strategies, retrieval options, fault tolerance, data consistency, availability and scalability. There is easily now more variability in the NoSQL space than there has been between any given SQL solutions. The decision now is not whether to use NoSQL solutions but which solution to choose based on your projects needs.
This talk will look at the differences between various types of NoSQL solutions, their strengths and weaknesses, and problems that they are particularly well (or poorly) suited for. We'll briefly cover the differences between column-oriented, document-oriented, graph, and key-value stores before looking at a few specific databases (MongoDB, Cassandra, CouchBase, and Redis) and the types of issues where they can be of the most use.
We'll have our usual food and chat before the meetup so feel free to arrive at 6:30 to eat and meet some others.
See you there,
