  • A Dozen Databases in 45 Minutes

    by Eric Redmond

    Choosing a data storage engine is an important decision, but it doesn’t have to be painful if you know the landscape. The decision should be made by research, not buzzwords. Authoring the book “Seven Databases in Seven Weeks” has opened up a whole world of open source database alternatives that I never before seriously considered - and we’ve sifted through them so you don’t have to. At the very least we can settle the Mongo v. Couch debate (hint: they’re both awesome).

    This talk will include:

    • A 30,000 foot view of the current database ecosystem.
    • How to choose the correct database for a project (the CAP theorem).
    • Thoughts by database project leaders.

    Among the DBMSs we’ll look into are: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, Memcached, Riak, Cassandra, HBase, MongoDB, CouchDB, Neo4J, OrientDB, DB4o.

    At 2:30pm to 3:15pm, Tuesday 21st June
