Data is getting bigger and more complex by the day, and so are your choices in handling it. If you thought Bruce A. Tate’s popular Seven Languages in Seven Weeks was a great way to grok different language ideas, now you can do the same with databases.
If you’re curious about the NoSQL movement, and want to get up to speed on the different technologies now available and in common use, then you need Seven Databases in Seven Weeks, now in print and shipping from.
Seven Databases in Seven Weeks: A Guide to Modern Databases and the NoSQL Movement
Redis, Neo4J, CouchDB, MongoDB, HBase, Riak, and Postgres: with each database, you’ll tackle a real-world data problem that highlights the concepts and features that make it shine. You’ll explore the five data models employed by these databases: relational, key/value, columnar, document, and graph. See which kinds of problems are best suited to each, and when to use them.
You’ll learn how MongoDB and CouchDB are strikingly different, and discover the Dynamo heritage at the heart of Riak. Make your applications faster with Redis and more connected with Neo4J. Use MapReduce to solve Big Data problems. Build clusters of servers using scalable services like Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
Understand the tradeoffs between consistency and availability, and when you can use them to your advantage. Use multiple databases in concert to create a platform that’s more than the sum of its parts, or find one that meets all your needs at once.
Seven Databases in Seven
