Welcome to NoSQL, Oracle – we’ve been expecting you. | Couchbase Blog

Somehow this (click here for the entire post)…

For those who have been skeptical of NoSQL’s long-term place in the database industry and preferred to think of it as a niche technology, Oracle’s announcement should make clear that NoSQL is not a fad.  Oracle is a deservedly well-respected company that does not enter markets lightly and has no interest in participating in small niche markets. Clearly, Oracle’s market entry signals that one of the original skeptics has rethought the importance of NoSQL. I suspect it is no coincidence that Oracle’s entrance coincides with the growing interest in NoSQL on the part of enterprises.

… reminds me of Apple’s infamous 1981 WSJ ad (see here for the full ad)

Has the NoSQL community never heard of Oracle Berkeley DB?  Why do so few people appear to understand that Oracle owns the world’s top two open source DBMSs, with MySQL and Berkeley DB, and has been addressing many facets of what’s now termed NoSQL for many years?
