What kind of database do you need?
Thanks to new database projects like CouchDB, TokyoCabinet, Solr and others, there are more non-relational database options available than ever for developers. Yet good information on how to choose what kind of database you need is still scarce. We'll cure that in this talk.
When do you want to use a SQL-relational database? When do you want to use a non-relational database? What are the types of non-relational databases available today? What kinds of things is each well-suited for?
