Getting insight out of your big data isn't a marathon. It's definitely a race.
But extracting that critical information from NoSQL databases can be a challenge, as this article by Forbes writer Dave Feinleib points out. The sheer scale of the information is difficult to cope with, while the prospect of data loss lurks in the background. Feinleib profiles a company called Garantia Data, which offers cloud-based automation technology that can overcome these challenges, he says.
The company's co-founders set out a list of key things that are important to get the most out of in-memory NoSQL services, including automated scalability and management, zero data loss, high-performing hardware and a pay-as-you-go pricing scheme.
