If Ittycheria can work his magic to get more enterprises to use MongoDB in new applications and gradually encourage them to sign up for paid licenses, he can help the company keep growing beyond other NoSQL database companies, including Basho, Couchbase, and DataStax, as well as early-stage startups like Orchestrate and RethinkDB.
Volume, velocity, and variety are the well-known traits of big data that are creating new challenges for the enterprise.
There is a young upstart in the world of data management these days, eager to take on the establishment and show how things can be done differently – NoSQL.
In big data storage, solutions are trying to first look at nature of big data and then find better ways to store and retrieve such data.
NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, along with CouchDB, Cassandra and others, rose in popularity over the past few years because they hold vast amounts of information that would be prohibitively costly or outright impossible to store in regular SQL databases, even though such data stores can lack the consistency and query specificity that relational databases provide.
Tools such as identity management, session encryption, data encryption, monitoring and logging are built into the cloud.
For balanced read/write scenarios (needed in travel where price and availability are subject to change all the time) Aerospike has been tested at well over 50,000 transactions per second per server using SSDs.
John Glendenning, vice president of EMEA at DataStax, says: ‘If you consider the IoT as being based on three parts – the device, the data that the device creates and how that data can be leveraged by applications – you start to get an idea of the components organisations need to think about to really start to leverage and take advantage of this new term.
