One more thing...

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

Thanks,

Thanks Jan! And thanks to all who have reviewed and commented.

I'll plan on sending this to Cassandra by EOD today (ET). Thank you for the
introduction there, Sally!

Thanks,
Lynnette

>> 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.
