NoSQL: When, Why, and How
Big Data is yet another buzz word floating around and at its center is NoSQL, an alternative to traditional RDBMS’s like SQL Server. With data growing exponentially, it’s difficult for even an expert DBA to manage. You may have heard of MongoDB, Hadoop, or Redis, but what are they and how are they being used. Amazon is using NoSQL to recommend other products for you to purchase, Google is using it for its lightning-fast search, and many of you may already be using it for web caching.
In this session you will learn the basics of NoSQL, its different flavors, along with when to use NoSQL in place of a traditional relational database. I’ll finish the presentation with a brief demo showing how easy it is to implement a basic movie recommendation engine.
