Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the NoSQL Zone (Jan. 10 to Jan. 16). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. NoSQL Databases Compared: Differences, Strengths, and Examples

There's been a lot of comparison of SQL and NoSQL lately, but what is to be done if you're already sold on NoSQL and just don't know which database is for you, or your project in particular? To meet that need, check out this rather thorough comparison of NoSQL databases.

2. Some Myths of Open Source, the Way I See it

The Open Source movement is full of myths. There are different myths from inside the movement (i.e. those who think it's a good thing) and outside (i.e. those who do not). In this article, you'll find a few of those myths, as well as the author's interpretation and opinion of them.

3. MongoDB Time Series: Introducing the Aggregation Framework

In previous posts, the author talked about batch importing and the out-of-the-box MongoDB performance. Recently, though, MongoDB was awarded DBMS of the year, so he therefore decided to offer a more thorough analysis of its real-life usage.

4. MongoDB Schema Design: How to Think Non-Relational

A nice video about MongoDB schema design. To all who are new to MongoDB, MongoDB is a leading NoSQL document oriented database. A table in RDBMS can be contrasted to a Collection in MongoDB, and a row in RDBMS table corresponds to a JSON document in MongoDB.

5. Early Lock Release: Transactions and Errors

There has been quite a lot of research on the notion of early lock release as a way to improve database concurrency. For a while, Voron actually supported that, mostly because the author thought that it was a good idea. Lately, however, he decided that it is anything but for modern databases.
