White Paper: Data Management for Highly Scalable Applications

NoSQL, Object Caching & IMDSs: Alternatives for Highly Scalable Data Management

Has the traditional relational database management system (RDBMS) reached its limits in today's high volume, highly scalable real-time applications? Arguably the RDBMS imposes a bottleneck in such environments; this widely held view can be seen in current enthusiasm over NoSQL solutions. McObject's white paper examines RDBMS limits and the technologies that are suggested to replace or supplement it, including NoSQL (actually an umbrella term for numerous software categories), object caching solutions (such as Memcached), and in-memory database systems (IMDSs). Characteristics discussed include persistence, performance, scalability, recoverability, data integrity, and database developer tools.
