3 Case Studies in NoSQL and Java in the Real World

Not-only-SQL (NoSQL) systems can be applied in a large number of problem domains. In general, it’s safe to say that NoSQL is a contender against traditional RDBMSs if data storage and retrieval needs aren’t transactional.

This presentation covers three case studies where traditional RDBMS approaches had been taken, and ultimately abandoned in favor of NoSQL document databases and massive, fast-access storage mechanisms. The presentation covers Java, mongoDB, HBase, GridFS, and HDFS, and provides insights into how each of of the applications were designed, deployed, refactored, and launched in production.
