As the amount and pace of data-generation keeps growing, businesses are stepping away from traditional rdbms solutions and go for highly scalable store solutions. Numerous papers are being published on this topic for instance by well known companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon and opensource projects come into existence like Cassandra and Hadoop. In this BOF we want to give an overview on these emerging technologies and discuss what they could mean for your business applications. We would also like to gather experience reports from people using for instance Cassandra.
