In the new database world there are so many different solutions, vendors and options available that it is super hard to figure out which database is the right solution for us. First of all the world of the big data itself is very confusing. It is so hard to figure out from where to start and where to stop. There are so many tutorials out but none of them addresses the need of the absolute beginner.
Now the same thing goes to the next level when one has to select the right database for their organization and there is no clear guidance. I was discussing the same thing with the NuoDB folks last month. The NuoDB is a great product, but it is extremely important to know where exactly NuoDB stands when compared with other product. Interesting enough the smart folks at NuoDB has come up with a Cheat Sheet which compares NuoDB with the other industry known database.
The best part is that even though we do not have enough time for learning all the other database in depth, it is totally possible to take 60 seconds of the time and see the comparison of the features in this cheatsheet.
Download “The Decision Maker’s Cheat Sheet” to compare NuoDB, MySQL and MongoDB on:
SQL / ACID transactions
Distributed Multi-version Concurrency Control (MVCC)
Elastic scale-out performance
Integration with existing tools and frameworks
Geo-distributed data management
