Your Database Is Probably Terrible
It turned out that within Google, there were a whole lot of people who didn’t think too much of BigTable and its limitations. So they went and built Spanner, a relational database that doesn’t just scale, but scales across the planet. Meanwhile, FoundationDB was attacking the problem from one end, creating a datastore that is both NoSQL and ACID, while Clustrix was making a relational database that can happily and seamlessly scale horizontally as you add more servers. (As of this week they launched on Amazon Web Services, too.) (via Your Database Is Probably Terrible | TechCrunch)
