Hi Sally,



That sounds great! Perhaps once we have some feedback and the draft is closer to a final version,
you can facilitate and intro and let Cassandra know I'll be passing along the responses. That
way you can close the loop on your end and I can manage the follow-up.



Thanks,

Lynnette

Thanks, Lynette.



I'm happy to liaise an introduction to Cassandra, as she initially came to us through press@apache.org
--at a minimum I'd like to follow up on my note to her stating that we'll find someone to
help <g>.



Glad to leave things in your capable hands from that point!



Chat soon,

Sally

Hi there,







I've copy and pasted a draft for the community's review. Let me know if you'd like me to share
this as a Google doc if that's easier.







The submission date is 12/4. Once there's agreement on responses and who will be the spokesperson,
let me know if you'd like me to loop back in with Cassandra, the writer at Software Magazine,
on behalf of the community.







Thanks,



Lynnette









Name and title of person responding to these questions (as you would like it to appear in
the article).



[TBD by CouchDB Community]













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.

Hi there,







If this is something of interest, I'd be happy to start working up responses. I can send along
a draft for review early next week, and the community can provide feedback and identify the
"expert source" to be cited.







Let me know what you think!







Thanks,



Lynnette

Hey guys --a quick heads-up that we've received the following media query today.



There are some basic questions at the bottom of Cassandra's email below; not sure if someone
in the CouchDB community wants to take this, or if you'd prefer I connected with another TLP
on the request. Please let me know how you'd like to proceed and I'll be happy to liaise
the introduction.



Many kind thanks,Sally
