There are now three separate categories of DBMS: relational, business intelligence, and NoSQL
We can't know where we're going unless we know where we're from. In that spirit, here's our take on the still-ongoing evolution of the database software space. There used to be two main categories of database management systems (DBMS). One was the classic operational relational database management system like Oracle or the open source MySQL. The other was the business intelligence database space. Products in this category are SQL, but the difference is that they're for data warehousing and support - they're not designed to be real time operational stores. Think of offline, background data processing and mining with decision support and intelligence. Examples that come to mind are Vertica, Aster Data, Greenplum, and Netezza. In this business intelligence database bucket, we’d also include technologies like Hadoop, that are more data processing than storage but directly adjacent to DBMS. That was the old world. It's safe to say in 2010 that the first bucket, operational databases, has split in two, creating three separate categories of DBMS. It's not going to be just all Oracle and MySQL. Some use cases will still be, but we’d bet at least half of the operational use cases are going to end up on the new breed of solutions called NoSQL in the next couple years. The advantages of NoSQL databases are no secret at this point - high horizontal scalability (crucial in a time when cloud computing is becoming immensely popular), performance, and ease of assembly for developers working with agile techniques and object-oriented programming languages. Forward-looking organizations will have to come to terms with this disruption in the DBMS market. As more and more data subsystems require the unique benefits that NoSQL offers, more developers and businesses will jump on the bandwagon. MongoDB has started to set this trend with users like SourceForge, GitHub, the New York Times and Electronic Arts. A possible analogy is the move from procedural to object-oriented programming. You won't want to be the last person to write a web app using NoSQL, just as 20 years ago, you didn't want to be the last person to pick up object-oriented programming. http://www.10gen.com/ Tagged with: nosql, database, business intelligence
MongoDB at AWS re:Invent 2020
While 2020 has been a challenging year, it has also given rise to new levels of innovative collaboration and agile thinking. Where better to experience both than at AWS re:Invent 2020? At MongoDB, we’re excited to partner with AWS on this free, 3-week virtual event, providing unlimited access to hundreds of sessions led by Cloud experts. Although we’ll miss the grand, buzzing halls of the Venetian Hotel and the celebratory sounds of slot machines this year, it’s still important to approach AWS re:Invent with a focused plan. Think of this year’s event as an opportunity to curate your own perfectly tailored experience. Check out this page for details of our fresh new lineup of deep-dives, targeted jam sessions and — of course — the annual MongoDB late-night party. Here are some of the highlights. AWS Jam — "Excel isn't a database!" Imagine this: It's your first week in a new job, and the VP of sales has already given you an important data task. The good news? From the start of the year, all your current sales data has been stored in MongoDB Atlas — allowing operational and analytical workloads to run on the live data set. The not-so-good news? That wasn't always the case. For years before they switched, their database (well, ”database”) of choice was… Excel. Fortunately someone took the initiative to export that data in CSV format and store it in S3, but now the sales team needs your help to analyze that data — and they need it fast. In our “Excel isn’t a database!” Jam Session, you’ll test and upgrade your skills by connecting MongoDB Atlas Data Lake to CSV data that’s been languishing in an S3 bucket. Then you’ll run an aggregation to complete the challenge and claim points. Game on! This jam session will be available on-demand for the duration of AWS re:Invent Databases & S3: Auto-archiving Breakout Session Databases are built for fast access, but this can also make them resource-intensive. As data grows, you may want to optimize performance (or cost) by migrating old or infrequently used data into cheap object storage. But this presents its own problems: automating the archival process, ensuring data consistency during failures, and either querying two data stores separately or building a query federation system. In this talk, you’ll learn about how we approached these problems while building Online Archive and Federated Query features into MongoDB Atlas, lessons learned from the experience, and how you can do the same. MongoDB Late Nite That’s right: it’s a party! In the spirit of Vegas, MongoDB will be hosting an interactive late-night bash complete with throw-back entertainment at our virtual after-hours event.
