Chapter 1. NoSQL: It’s about making intelligent choices
Figure 1.1. In this figure, we see how the business drivers volume, velocity, variability, and agility apply pressure to the single CPU system, resulting in the cracks. Volume and velocity refer to the ability to handle large datasets that arrive quickly. Variability refers to how diverse data types don’t fit into structured tables, and agility refers to how quickly an organization responds to business change.
Figure 1.2. The map and reduce functions are ways of partitioning large datasets into smaller chunks that can be transformed on isolated and independent transformation systems. The key is isolating each function so that it can be scaled onto many servers.
