One of the most popular pieces I have produced since joining 451 is not a research report or presentation but the database landscape graphic that accompanied our NoSQL, NewSQL and Beyond report.
We’ve seen it crop up in other presentations and websites – sometimes even with attribution 😉
We actually updated the image to accompany our more recent report MySQL vs. NoSQL and NewSQL: 2011-2015 but I realised that I haven’t made that newer version more generally available. So here it is:
We wouldn’t claim it to be perfect. There’s a whole new breed of data platform-as-a-service providers that have emerged in recent months that will need to be added, if we can find space for them.
Meanwhile there are a group of database vendors that have also emerged that don’t easily fit into the segments we’ve created: companies like Drawn to Scale, FoundationDB, Aerospike and Splice Machine.
But since the original graphic continues to be popular, I thought I’d share the latest iteration as well. Any feedback always welcome
