If you can’t synchronize between peer nodes in a given cluster, you’re not really […]
It’s time to think of the architecture and application platforms surrounding "Big Data" databases. Big Data is often centered around new database technologies mostly from the emerging NoSQL world. The main challenge that these databases solve is how to handle…
