Another awesome canvas demo… pretty addictive too! (via @gonun13)
At this point Cassandra and HBase lead the pack with managing huge clusters, Riak is a great runner-up. In comparison, MongoDB’s and CouchDB’s capabilities are pale. And that is okay, they have different priorities. MongoDB drops ACID for speed. The CouchDB and Cassandra people grow grey hair over such statements; on the other hand MongoDB seems crazy fast. CouchDB trumps everyone with peer-to-peer replication and a reliable simple storage model, and boy does it handle concurrency well. Scalaris keeps transaction in NoSQL-land; distributed transactions (you heard me). CAP says we’re all fucked (except Mike Stonebraker, apparently). Redis rocks the world with remote data structures and atomic operations over them plus being one of the kick-assest Open Source projects out there. Graph traversal? Hello Neo4j. CouchDB laughs at the rest for not being fully based on open web standards, and they laugh right back because HTTP has more overhead than traditional binary database protocols.
Great resume of the main NoSQL projects pros and cons!
this running smooth on more complex flash movies would really rock!!
