Title: The NoSQL movement

Abstract:The NoSQL movement has seen a lot of fanfare online. However, after traveling and speaking with customers, colleagues, and other database companies there are number of questions around NoSQL that have inconsistent answers or no answers at all. This session attempts to delve into NoSQL from its origins to modern day to tackle some of these questions:

The session will use online data and case studies as well as InterSystems company case studies of successful NoSQL deployments. We will answer the "How do I use a NoSQL database?" question by:

  1. Installing at least 2 NoSQL databases. (Install takes minutes and requirements/setup are different).
  2. Reviewing the Java APIs for the installed databases.
  3. Writing / Reviewing / Running source code against the Java APIs and comparing the results of implementing a CRUD (Create Read Update Delete) use case.
  4. Optimize and measure performance of the solutions in #3.
  5. Time permitting, discuss/setup distributed environment for the CRUD tests.

We will answer the "How do I choose a NoSQL database?" via review of an online editable (wiki) and dynamic feature matrix that hopes to be the foundation for NoSQL comparison information. The matrix is dynamic in that it allows users to compare 1 ~ N databases (N = to the number of databases in the system). The matrix is editable because it allows any registered user to edit/add information.
