While many of our applications use open-source systems like Hadoop, HBase, Cassandra, Mongo, RabbitMQ, and MySQL, our usage is fairly standard, but there is one aspect of what we do that is pretty unique. We collect or receive information from 100+ sources and we struggled early on to find a way to deal with how data from those sources changed over time, and we ultimately decided that we needed a data storage solution that could represent those changes. Basically, we needed to be able …

The key word is ephemeral—if your instance dies, so does your data. This is why we would only recommend the use of local SSDs in clustered database setups (with three or more nodes) or for use in applications where data can safely be lost.

…the better-known NoSQL databases, including Riak, Redis, Cassandra, CouchDB and MongoDB. That was in early 2011. I wrote a chapter on MongoDB, but it didn't feel right to me, so I tried a different approach on the Riak chapter, much more focused on being practical and introducing the user-facing concepts in a streamlined way, building up as the book progresses.
That approach felt much more natural to me, so eventually I started on the Redis chapter and thought I nailed it. …
