NoSQL trends: MongoDB, Cassandra, Couch & Riak

NoSQL has been a pretty hot topic over the last few years. There are a number of contenders in the NoSQL world - MongoDB, Cassandra, Couch, Riak etc. These are just the main ones, with a number of other contenders. I have also deliberately not included the "NewSQL" databases in the list. All the above vendors are doing some very interesting things with distributed, highly scalable nosql databases. But how are they doing overall? I've been meaning to build a NoSQL database trends report over the past few weeks. Today I finally got around to building a simple report on Google trends. Here are the results.

Although Google search terms are good - job trends are a bit closer to the "truth"

If you check out job trends then MongoDB and Cassandra are much closer in terms of usage

Also I would suggest you add HBase and Redis to that list then it becomes much more of a continuum
