It seems like everywhere we look there’s talk about next-gen databases. Under the rallying cry of “NoSQL,” several close-kept secret databases have gone open-source recently, giving everyone many exciting and confusing new opportunities. Some perform like crazy, some scale out to football field size, some just keep going no matter what, and none of them look like the SQL database we all grew up with.

In this session, Andreas Kollegger will take you on a whirlwind tour of the current NoSQL landscape. He’ll give a crash course overview of the four main categories of NoSQL databases, and discuss what’s currently lacking to make the enterprise adopt NoSQL, and how to solve it.
