The world has changed massively in the past 20 years. Back in the year 2000, a few million users connected to the web using a 56k modem attached to a PC, and Amazon only sold books. Now billions of people are using to their smartphone or tablet 24×7 to buy just about everything, and they’re interacting with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The pace has been unstoppable. Expectations have also changed. If a web page doesn’t refresh within seconds we’re quickly frustrated, and go elsewhere. If a website is down, we fear it’s the end of civilization as we know it. If a major site is down, it makes global headlines.
With these increased expectations, it is clear that businesses need to overhaul their infrastructure. However, with so many options available, it can be hard to know which database(s) to choose.
Use John Ryan’s new eBook, Oracle vs. NoSQL vs. NewSQL: Comparing Database Technology, as a guide to the OLTP wilderness and learn:
- The tradeoffs and sacrifices that NoSQL databases make.
- The refinement of an OLTP platform.
- How NewSQL databases blow legacy technologies out of the water.

- And more!
