Product Description

Review

The flow is perfect. On Friday, you'll be up and running with a new database. On Saturday, you'll see what it's like under daily use. By Sunday, you'll have learned a few tricks that might even surprise the experts! And next week, you'll vault to another database and have fun all over again.--Ian Dees Coauthor, "Using JRuby"

Provides a great overview of several key databases that will multiply your data modeling options and skills. Read if you want database envy seven times in a row.--Sean Copenhaver Lead Code Commodore backgroundchecks.com

This is by far the best substantive overview of modern databases. Unlike the host of tutorials, blog posts, and documentation I have read, this book taught me why I would want to use each type of database and the ways in which I can use them in a way that made me easily understand and retain the information. It was a pleasure to read.--Loren Sands-Ramshaw Software Engineer U.S. Department of Defense

Though the selection of specific products is somewhat arbitrary, given the proliferation of so-called "No-SQL" databases, this is hard to avoid. The author has done a good job of picking products that represent different types of data storage technology, and also of explaining what "No-SQL" is evolving to really mean. If you are responsible for a system that has to store data, and are reviewing your architecture, this book is a good starting point.

I first skimmed the book and then worked through it, chapter by chapter. This is an excellent introduction and hands-on into the world of polyglot persistence. Congrats to the authors and I'd like to see 'Another Seven Databases'?

Not bad - I have recently seen a better book titled "NoSQL Destilled" by Pramod J Sadalage and Martin Fowler.
Though if you are looking for a more detailed book, this will be a good jumpstart on a lot of different implementations of non-relational databases.

Very good overview of nosql databases. Helpful to get one started with basic understanding and then dig into more details.
