I just want to let you know that thanks to this article I was able to proposed some enhancements at work and get a data processing job of many hours to run 45% faster. Great article!

Excellent overview of the changing landscape in database technology. As a venture capital investor I have been pursuing the theme of polyglot persistence and think there are at least 7 different access patterns: SQA/relational, key-value/cache, json/document, columnar/analytical, inverted/search, time-series and graph. We happen to be involved with Couchbase and Influx as well as MapR. Exciting times in the database world!
