"NoSQL" is more than just a popular industry buzzword. Although it has been 17 years since Carlo Strozzi coined the neologism, the concept is even older than that. The world had NoSQL databases long before SQL was invented in the 1970s, thus proving that everything old is new again. In recent years a new wave of enterprise-class NoSQL databases have come to the fore to challenge the supremacy of Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS). One such example is Aerospike, a Flash/SSD-optimized key-value database. In this presentation, Peter Milne will take you through a comparison of NoSQL technologies. What are the conceptual differences between NoSQL and RDBMS? Why consider one versus the other for your use case? What data modeling, architectural and practical migration factors you will need to consider?
