Earlier today, a developer contacted me to get some information about SQL Server since he is trying to decide which DBMS to use for his project. Our conversation eventually moved away from SQL Server and brought us to the 'Relational vs. Non-Relational' discussion and of course 'NoSQL' was there waiting to be called next.
During that conversation I realised what little knowledge I had of NoSQL and not understanding both sides of the story made it difficult to give advice without seeming one sided. After the discussion I decided to go do some reading on it and thought it would be a good idea to blog about it as well. However with the number of things that I have to do I would probably take forever to get a blog post like that published.
I decided to go another route and ask the community for help. Please leave a comment with links to Articles/Blog post/Interviews/etc. that you wrote and/or read on NoSQL.
To start off the knowledge sharing I would like to highlight three links from SQL Server Magazine:
- NoSQL - A Quick Overview - by Kevin Kline
- NoSQL? No Way! - by Michael Otey
- Kline and Brent Ozar Discuss When NoSQL Works Better than SQL Server - An interview on Megan Keller's Database Administration Blog.
