Thinking Scale With NoSQL Stores

  • May 31, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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 They say LAMP is outdated.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 different NoSQL stores differ in their internal architecture. We will specifically be discussing NoSQL design approach in MongoDB and Cassandra.

Topics that people have asked to be covered

• Different types of databases - Object-oriented, graph databases, document databases etc

• Support for NoSQL like features in relational stores (Postgres hstore/JSON support)


• MongoDB v/s Hadoop - when to use what


• Performance issues


• Storing binary data like images in NoSQL stores/use of GridFS


• Sharding in NoSQL databases (may be hard to cover given the limited time - but let's see!)


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

    i had these questions:
    1) when sql databases like postgres (hstore), mysql offer NoSQL support, why do we need to go for MongoDB (or) any other NoSQL db?
    2) why does nosql DBs like HBase require a new file system - HDFS?
    3) CAP theorem in the context of Mongo DB & Couch DB.....
