For a look at what's been happening outside of the NoSQL Zone, we've assembled a collection of links from around the web covering all the tutorials, tools, new releases, rants, and raves you might have missed over the past couple of weeks:

Tutorials & Tools

SSDs and MapReduce Performance

Recently, Cloudera engineers did such a study based on a combination of SSDs and HDDs, with the goal of determining to what extent SSDs accelerate different MapReduce workloads, as well as the optimal configurations for getting the best performance on each workload.

Beekeeper

Beekeeper is a Customizable, Realtime Graphing built on MongoDB and cube. It is available under the GPL V3 License.

Vagrant-node 

Easy nodejs and mongoDB vagrant box for your next small webapp.

redis-traffic-stats 

redis-traffic-stats is a query analyzer for Redis.

SSDB

A fast NoSQL database for storing big list of billions of elements, an alternative to Redis.


News & Opinion

Cassandra Hits One Million Writes Per Second on Google Compute Engine

In a recent blog post, we demonstrated how Google Cloud Platform can rapidly provision and scale networking load to handle one million requests per second. A fast front end without a fast backend has limited use, so we decided to demonstrate a backend serving infrastructure that could handle the same load.

Imagine NoSQL

If John Lennon was around today, and he cared about databases, he might have had this to say.

New Data Structure for Redis: The HyperLogLog

Generally speaking, I love randomized algorithms, but there is one I love particularly since even after you understand how it works, it still remains magical from a programmer point of view.

Oracle Attempts to Create NoSQL Standards Body

Database giant Oracle is attempting to create a NoSQL standards body.

NoSQL No More

I work at Revolv, and right now we're just about finished with a major migration off of a NoSQL database. We're moving onto a traditional RDBMS (PostgreSQL, to be precise). Many people seem surprised that we, a tech-savvy startup, would be moving to an "old" technology.
