Oracle’s NoSQL Service a Signal For The Future

Oracle just released their NoSQL service.  Is it just me or is it like Microsoft switching to a Unix based architecture?  Oracle’s transactional database system has been the standard for ERP, finance and other large operations for a very long time.  By unveiling their NoSQL service it looks like they’re taking a strong swing at Amazon’s Dynamo DB which they claim is reliable and cheaper.

To me, it is a signal from Oracle that they realize traditional database models will not be used or sustainable at some point in the future and NoSQL type solutions are of course the way to go for many types of databases especially where data need not be consistent at an exact moment in time.

The future is promising and exciting and in either sense I think Oracle is signaling to the world that the era of big-data is probably one that won’t exist with traditional relational and transactional databases as we’ve previously come to expect over the years.

What do you think?

Business and technology have always gone hand in hand for me, and now I've built nearly 20 years of expertise. A few notable achievements: -> Tier III-Designed & deployed multiple mission critical datacenter environments in Canada, US, Hong Kong, Singapore & China. -> Software Engineering: Created a Linux OS from scratch, including a custom kernel to maintain millions of dollars in client infrastructure, deploy and report as needed. Created the “Windows Geeks” and “Password Pros” Windows Password Reset software recommended by Microsoft. -> Business Negotiations: Conducted intensive negotiations with branches of the Peoples Republic of China and the various state-run Telecom operations including China Telecom and China Unicom for access to their trillion dollar backbone infrastructure. We were the first western company to have such network access where other IT companies such as Vodafone and Google failed. -> Cloud Infrastructure Creation: Created the first proprietary “Clustered Cloud Architecture” that rivals competing Google, IBM, Microsoft & Alibaba alternatives. I'd love to chat #IT or #Linux or even #Business, so don't hesitate to connect. Cheers!
