ENTRIES TAGGED "Cassandra"
Singly believes your data tells your story, news orgs debate word clouds, and Mary Meeker looks at the latest Internet trends.
Data democratization takes a step forward with Singly 1.0, The New York Times and The Guardian debate the finer points of word clouds, and Mary Meeker presents her annual report on Internet trends.
On March 11 Boston will join several other cities who have host conferences on the movement broadly known as NoSQL. Cassandra, CouchDB, HBase, HypergraphDB, Hypertable, Memcached, MongoDB, Neo4j, Riak, SimpleDB, Voldemort, and probably other projects as well will be represented at the one-day affair. The interviews I had with various projects leaders for this article turned up a recurring usage pattern for NoSQL. What connects the users is that they carry out web-related data crunching, searching, and other Web 2.0 related work. I think these companies use NoSQL tools because they’re the companies who understand leading-edge technologies and are willing to take risks in those areas. As the field gets better known, usage will spread.
