Open source programming tool on the rise: NoSQL

The NoSQL trend started several years ago, but it keeps heating up as more websites recognize that their future is in vast quantities of data that don't need all of the belts and suspenders protections offered by serious databases like Oracle.

The latest tools make it easier to deploy NoSQL into clouds. Amazon's SimpleDB can be paid for by the byte, and many other teams are offering additional NoSQL tools as services. Cassandra, for example, is supported by DataStax. MongoDB has inspired more than a handful of cloud hosts. The tools continue to proliferate, boasting almost too many to list. Thank goodness someone is maintaining a list of all the NoSQL databases.
