Hi Lynette --not sure if this is what you're looking for, but here's a screenshot [1] of Fauxton
as we used in the press release [2].


Cheers,
Sally

One more thing...

Are there any screen shots of the dashboard or other images you'd like to use for the article?

Thanks,

>> Please list your firm’s DBMS offering(s) and database model(s), as well as what
sets it (them) apart from other DBMS solution(s).
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> Apache CouchDB™ is an open source NoSQL database that moves data through a unique
model of replication and synchronization. CouchDB allows data to be distributed across multiple
data centers and devices—whether they’re on-premises or across the globe—bringing application
data to users wherever they need it. The database well-suited for high-traffic applications
that use lots of reads and writes, and CouchDB’s replication and synchronization allows
for continuous use: even when devices are offline, “always on” applications can withstand
network problems and maintain uptime.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> Specific to “Big Data,” please discuss the benefits of this particular type of
DBMS model (if you offer multiple types, please comment on each). What are the limitations?
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> CouchDB stores data as JSON documents, rather than in structured tables like relational
databases. This approach lends itself to a more denormalized data model, where all the data
related to a particular record is encapsulated in a single document. Because data in CouchDB
can be logically grouped together into individual documents, CouchDB implementations provide
the ability to shard the database for better performance and scale horizontally across many
nodes.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> At the heart of CouchDB’s distributed system design is peer-to-peer “masterless”
data replication. The same mechanisms that allow CouchDB to create readable and writable database
replicas within a single cluster allow it to move and synchronize data between clusters around
the world or directly with Web browsers and mobile applications. As applications grow, so
does the amount users are interacting with and creating data, which is why a database that
moves data and scales gracefully is critical.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> There are limitations for highly relational workloads that don’t benefit from the
flexible schema of CouchDB, or for applications that rely on databases to support transactions
or prioritize hard consistency over high availability.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> Specific to Big Data, is there a benefit to an open source versus commercial solution,
and vice versa? Why or why not?
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> As businesses turn to DBMS solutions to handle a wide array of projects, the open
source options offer free, customizable, community tested solutions. Many commercial products
are built on open source databases, so companies have the flexibility of the open source software
coupled with the services and benefits of a brand (for example, IBM Cloudant offers a CouchDB-based
managed service, with additional features Cloudant has built and layered on top of the CouchDB
open source database). Another benefit, and a reason behind the open source basis of so many
NoSQL databases, is the innovation that inherently accompanies open source. Instead of a small
team working on a proprietary solution, open source projects are supported by communities
with diverse collaborators from different backgrounds.
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> What trends can we expect in the near future in terms of DBMS as more organizations
look to add or enhance big data to their business strategy?
>> 
>> 
>> 
>> Ensuring high availability of applications is increasingly important, so we expect
to see organizations’ adopt strategies for moving data between data centers and devices
to make applications highly available. Enterprises are adopting “offline first” design
principles for Web and mobile apps; organizations need to have the flexibility to move their
data to locations both locally and around the world, and the ability to enable app usage regardless
of network connectivity.
