In this slidecast, Dave Rosenthal from FoundatoinDB, the first commercially available NoSQL database that supports global ACID transactions (found only in relational systems) and multi-data models.

Database technologies are undergoing rapid evolution, with new approaches being actively explored after decades of relative stability. Dave Rosenthal believes that the next generation of NoSQL will continue to employ shared-nothing, distributed architectures with fault tolerance and scalability. However, they will aggressively explore the strong-consistency permitted by the CAP theorem and will support ACID, allowing for multiple data models.

Rosenthal speaks to the history of NoSQL, problems that have arisen due to a lack of data consistency in NoSQL, his views on the CAP Theorem and where it's all headed.
