NoSQL takes the database market by storm

Brandon Butler | Oct. 28, 2014
NoSQL is a small but growing segment of the database market, according to 451 Research's Matt Aslett, who predicts it at about 2% of the size of the SQL market.

Bob Wiederhold, CEO of NoSQL database company Couchbase, says the market started to pick up in 2007/2008 when the first NoSQL products emerged. In the beginning of 2013 he noticed a shift when enterprise buyers began flocking to NoSQL databases as their feature richness and reliability reached an adequate point. "They were stable enough for mission critical," he says. He believes the market is still in the phase of enterprise adoption. He predicts 2014 to be a year of broad deployment of NoSQL databases across many different sectors and types of businesses. That's the CEO of a NoSQL database talking, but experts agree, NoSQL is here to stay.
