NoSQL design approach in MongoDB and Cassandra

Relational databases technology is at least three decades old. However, of late, people are skeptical about using relational databases in some specific use cases. Skeptics say that relational databases are not easy to scale while the so called NoSQL stores are much easier to scale. They say LAMP is outdated. The future is MEAN or something along those lines.

Is this true? Do NoSQL stores solve the scalability and fail over issues? How do they do it?

Unlike in the relational world, there are no standards around NoSQL. What this means is that every NoSQL store has a different way of looking at schema design. How do we choose a specific NoSQL store? 

• In this session we discuss how NoSQL design is different from relational design and 

• How NoSQL stores differ in their internal architecture.

• We will specifically be discussing NoSQL design approach in MongoDB and Cassandra.

RSVP: Only if you are 100% sure and interested in learning.

    To my knowledge, I guess we can make Ubuntu as 100% open source by using/installing the software packages from "Ubunut main" (officially supported) repository ONLY and not using/installing software packages from other repositories (Restricted, Universe and Multiverse). In this way, we can avoid all non-open source software to be used with a Ubuntu host.

      Agreed, although I believe that getting people to adopt Ubuntu and other free and open source software is a big leap away from proprietary software and I think that's a good first step.

    why call yourself open source when even your meetup url has ubuntu-linux ?

    • Gautham P.

      Saifi, this was a sincere mistake on our part. We have changed the URL to /free-software-evangelis­ts. Hope that is better!

    I am bit confused. How the topic "War of Databases" is related to Ubuntu?? The URL includes "ubuntu-linux". Am I missing something?

    May 25, 2014

    • Gautham P.

      Thanks Ravi - we have changed it to "Free Software Evangelists". Hope that clarifies.
