WHY ENTERPRISES ARE SHIFTING TO WHY ENTERPRISES ARE SHIFTING TO NoSQL DATABASE TECHNOLOGY TECHNOLOGY TECHNOLOGY TECHNOLOGY NoSQL DATABASE NoSQL DATABASE NoSQL DATABASE DOWNLOAD CASE STUDY The emergence of Big Data, the Internet of Things and hybrid cloud applications enable businesses to perform faster, smarter and more efficiently than ever. To harness that competitive edge, companies need a robust foundation to manage their data and run mission-critical applications. This tremendous growth of unstructured data and new apps has led to an evolution in database management. Companies that generate vast amounts of data are switching to NoSQL databases from traditional relational databases, which lack the flexibility and ability to scale to handle massive amounts of unstructured data. Let’s take a look at one company that made the switch. Whitepages is the leading source for contact information in North America. It provides access to 250 million personal identities for over 55 million unique visitors per month. Historically, to store and safeguard the accuracy and authenticity of those identities, Whitepages almost exclusively relied on relational databases. But as the company grew and launched new applications such as their Caller ID app, they faced the challenge of scaling their database infrastructure while ensuring availability. They needed a scalable solution that would be simple to operate, remain robust in the event of a node crash and expand capacity without losing any uptime. A number of database options including Hbase, Postgres, Cassandra and Basho Riak KV were evaluated – Riak KV was chosen as the clear winner for its high availability, scalability and ease of deployment.
With Riak KV, Whitepages was able to increase stability for its Caller ID app, scale at minimal cost and reduce operational complexity. Basho specializes in solving critical data management challenges for enterprises, with products designed to ensure the resilience and performance of key business applications. Controls and simplifies distributed Big Data and IoT applications; provides integration with Redis, Spark and Solr Distributed NoSQL database – guarantees reads and writes even in the event of hardware failures or network partitions Cloud storage software – more cost-effective than traditional storage; compatible with Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift for easy integration Distributed NoSQL database optimized for time series data – with faster reads and writes making it easier to store, query and analyze data With a payback period averaging 12-18 months, it’s no wonder that more than 30% of Fortune 50 companies use Basho to power their critical web, mobile and social applications.
