From the Back Cover

A hands-on guide to leveraging NoSQL databases

NoSQL databases are efficient, powerful tools for storing and manipulatingvast quantities of data. Most NoSQL databases scale well as data grows and often are flexible enough to accommodate semi-structured and sparse data sets. This comprehensive hands-on guide presents fundamental concepts and practical solutions for using NoSQL databases. Expert author Shashank Tiwari begins with a helpful introduction to NoSQL, explaining its characteristics and typical uses. He then looks at where it fits in the application stack. His unique insights help you choose which NoSQL solutions are best for solving your specific data storage needs.

Professional NoSQL:

  • Demystifies key concepts that relate to NoSQL databases, including column-family oriented stores, key/value databases, and document databases

  • Delves into installing and configuring a number of NoSQL products and the Hadoop family of products

  • Explains ways of storing, accessing, and querying data in NoSQL databases through examples that use MongoDB, HBase, Cassandra, Redis, CouchDB, Google App Engine Datastore, and more

  • Examines architecture and internals

  • Provides guidelines for optimal usage, performance tuning, and scalable configurations

  • Presents a number of tools and utilities relating to NoSQL, distributed platforms, and scalable processing, including Hive, Pig, RRDtool, Nagios, and more

The book offers a pretty high level overview of NoSQL solutions and tools. It touches each solution briefly, at the level typically easily found on the Internet. Having a "one stop shop" as a summary for the various solutions is nice and handy for a sequential read, but the book fails to offer any meaningful insight beyond the summary.

THE NoSQL book has arrived! (Even though Hadoop's most popular query language (HIVE) is based on SQL (MySQL)). Whatever... This book is not really valuable to an architect, CTO or anybody else who's serious about dumping the good old RDMS. It jumps around different no-Oracle-DB2-SQLServer-MySQL-PostgreSQL technologies and really doesn't get beyond the online tutorial you could find on yes-MonoDB-CouchDB-SimpleDB-Casandra-Hive-HBase-Hypertable-Redis web sites. YOU, as a potential reader of this book, are really interested in understanding if adopting these emerging data persistence technologies are worth risking your career. This book will, unfortunately, not answer that question.

Actually, NoSQL solutions and base file system (MongoDB, Cassandra, Redis, MemBase, HBase, GAE, ...) have not been brewed long time than the traditional RDBMS.

This book deals with lots of features of NoSQLs such as architectures, schema, how to run / input / output, the short histories, specifications and so on.

I know the examples and the explanations for the features are somewhat simple but I think this book is good for referencing or comparing NoSQLs.

Good book, anyway.

The author clearly states this: "If you are unsure where to start with NoSQL and how to learn to manage and analyze big data, then you will find this book to be a good introduction and a useful reference to the topic... Anyone starting out with big data analysis and NoSQL will gain from reading this book.". The author makes NO claim about making you a HBase or Hive or MongoDB expert. So I find the reviews about this book being shallow etc a bit amusing. The book also gives pointers to the download locations and makes a good attempt to make the reading exercise hands-on, rather than drone on about the technologies. The book could have priced in the 20's for wider reach among students - but this is a good resource for your NoSQL library.
