NoSQL’s great, but bring your A game [GigaOM]

NoSQL: the Klingon rite of ascension of database management (bring your own painsticks).  Check the full article for some MongoDB customer insights including “Once a problem is discovered, ‘it’s like CSI on your data’ to figure out what the underlying problem is.”

MongoDB might be a popular choice in NoSQL databases, but it’s not perfect — at least out of the box. At last week’s MongoSV conference in Santa Clara, Calif., a number of users, including from Disney, Foursquare and Wordnik, shared their experiences with the product. The common theme: NoSQL is necessary for a lot of use cases, but it’s not for companies afraid of hard work.
