Hi Andy,

I just shared the Google doc with you, Noah, Jan and Sally.

If anyone else is interested, let me know and I'll share editing
permissions as requests come through.

Thanks,
Lynnette

Hi Lynnette,

cool - thank you very much. I think it would be cool to have a Google doc
where we can add some comments ... if needed at all ;-)

Cheers

Andy

  I'm happy to liaise an introduction to Cassandra, as she initially came

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

  Chat soon,

  Subject: Software Magazine article on DBMS

  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.

  illustrations, and infographs, that help visualize your solution. Images

        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,

        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
