…scheduler that gave rise to Hadoop when it was mimicked, so did the BigTable NoSQL data store that has spawned a number of quasi-clones, and even the B4 WAN and the Spanner distributed file system that have yet to be cloned.

"What we have seen is that a logically centralized, hierarchical control plane with a peer-to-peer data plane beats full decentralization," explained Vahdat in his keynote. "All of these flew in the face of conventional wisdom," he continued, …

…Riak Handbook started out by way of this very site, if you will. Early on in the craze of NoSQL databases, I started writing about the fun and silliness I had playing with some of them.

That in turn led to the idea of the NoSQL Handbook, which, after more thought, distilled into the Riak Handbook.

I unknowingly built up interest for the technology, just by sharing what I discovered playing with them. The joys of new technologies.

Sell what you learn (and what you know)

When we set out to build our first product ( Scalarium , now better known as Amazon OpsWorks , we started off with a rookie mistake.

Initially, we played with some ideas to test if we can fit them together. This was mostly focussing on orchestration of servers and their provisioning. We tried out a mix of RabbitMQ, Nanite and Chef (early adopters, yay!)

Basho they make and maintain Riak , a distributed, highly available NoSQL database that's used by companies like Google, CNN, and Yammer. Andy was the one who designed and developed Riak. During his time at Basho he also developed Webmachine, a RESTful webserver in Erlang, and RiakCS, an S3-compatible, large-scale object storage system. I've known Andy for years and he's one of the smartest engineers I've met — he's a modest guy so I …

…Blob Storage . Azure's storage system is familiar to anyone who has used NoSQL. There's also a little bit of SQL Server mixed in there for some stuff where a relational database made sense. This is by far the biggest cost point of my monthly bill, but it's also pretty close to what Amazon is offering .

I also am using storage queues to communicate with Glassboard's attachment processor and notifications cloud services. This works pretty well, …

…quite different from relational databases, and it's also quite different from most of the other NoSQL databases. The reason for its differences is that it addresses more complex challenges with interconnected ( joined-up ) data. This makes Neo4j ideal for high fidelity modelling and high-performance querying of rich, real-world domains.

In this article we'll work through some retail recommendations problems with Neo4j and see how we can use graphs to store and query complex interconnected …
