MySQL Document Store – NoSQL solution for MySQL

As you might know, MySQL introduces Document Store (via JSON field) from version 5.7 and version 8.0. Since currently, it is in an early stage, the performance is not really good compared to its direct competitor: MongoDB. However, this is really a good move for MySQL after their introduction of MySQL […]

Install MongoDB 2.0.6 on Fedora 17/16, CentOS/Red Hat (RHEL) 6.3/5.8

The first part of this article is copied from since we will not reinvent the wheels 🙂 What is MongoDB? MongoDB (from “humongous”) is a scalable, high-performance, open source, schema-free, document-oriented database. Written in C++. MongoDB bridges the gap between key-value stores (which are fast and highly scalable) and traditional RDBMS […]

Using MySQL as a NoSQL – A story for exceeding 750,000 qps on a commodity server

This article describe an example of using MySQL as a NoSQL in which the application can exceed 750,000 qps on a commodity server. This is originated from UPDATE: Oracle officially released memcached daemon plugin that talks with InnoDB. I’m glad to see that NoSQL+MySQL has become an official solution. It’s still preview release […]

NoSQL Data Modeling Techniques

NoSQL databases are often compared by various non-functional criteria, such as scalability, performance, and consistency. This aspect of NoSQL is well-studied both in practice and theory because specific non-functional properties are often the main justification for NoSQL usage and fundamental results on distributed systems like the CAP theorem apply well to NoSQL systems.
