A few days ago Zeev  Rubinstein, a friend of mine, sent me cool link of Mu Dynamics Research Labs post, that described why they chose CouchDB, a leading Erlang based NoSQL product and what are their major benefits from these products:
  1. Low CPU and memory utilization.
  2. Map/Reduce support and usage of non normalized data model that fasten their time to market.
  3. Avoiding SQL Injections. Since NoSQL systems are not widely spread, there is relatively small number of known attacks against these products. However, please notice that as NoSQL products will turn into mainstream, there will be probably new types of attacks against these products. Yet, if you are an ethical hacker, it can be a new and existing topic that maybe can turn your name to the hottest one in the industry.





Keep Performing,
Moshe Kaplan
