Apologies, I’m a database type.....Quest is best known for toad, but we also have enterprise monitoring across all levels of the stackIn Melbourne, SQL Navigator + the spotlights. It’s not a complete co-incidence about the star trek theme.
Insanely popular – literally millions of users
This is your databaseThis is your database on crack
That’s a predictable linear growth curve. Gets much worse for unpredictable or cyclic demand So I think it’s real, and it excites me because it represents the realization of a more industrialized model for providing computing resources. In the early days of electricity everybody had thier own power sources and every company needed engineers as a result. Nowdays, few companies need that...
NoSQL tends to be strongly coupled with the application. Everybody else is out of luck

In search of the elastic database <br />Big Web sites AND Cloud applications need servers that scale up (and down) on demand<br />Elastic provisioning works fine for web servers, application servers, etc.<br />However RDBMS does not scale easily:<br />SQL Azure limited to one database <50GB on a single host<br />Oracle’s RAC not supported in cloud environments<br />MySQL sharding “obnoxious”<br />Many are willing to sacrifice relational database features for scalability and operational simplicity<br />
Column Databases (Vertica, Sybase)<br />Data is stored together in columns<br />Very fast answers to analytic aggregate queries<br />Better compression<br />Not write optimized<br />
Disk drives and Moore’s law<br />Transistor density doubles every 18 months<br />Exponential growth is observed in most electronic components:<br />CPU clock speeds<br />RAM<br />Hard Disk Drive storage density <br />But not in mechanical components<br />Service time (Seek latency) – limited by actuator arm speed and disk circumference <br />Throughput (rotational latency) – limited by speed of rotation, circumference and data density<br />
