Dr. Aasman said, “Some people have asked, “Why not do this on a distributed cloud system with Hadoop?” The quick answer: NoSQL databases like Hadoop and Cassandra fail on joins. Big Enterprise, big web companies and big government intelligence organizations are all looking into big data to work with massive amounts of semi-unstructured data. They are finding that NoSQL databases are wonderful if one needs access to a single object in an ocean of billions of objects, however, they also find that the current NoSQL databases fall short if you need to run graph database operations that require many complicated joins. A typical example would be performing a social network analysis query on a large telecom call detail record database.”

“Relational databases are exactly the right way to deal with classic business structures and relationships - sales catalog items, warehouse inventory, shipping logistics, customers, orders, etc... And I'm not suggesting here that that's likely to change. But relational databases are very difficult to press into service for 'fuzzier' applications, such as characterizing the linkages in a social network or predicting why a caller on a customer service line might be calling before the service representative picks up the phone.” stated Mitch Shults, Mission-Critical Segment Strategist, Intel Data Center Group, in a recent blog posting.
