Processing big data in real-time for artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things poses significant infrastructure challenges. Whether it is for autonomous vehicles, connected devices, or scientific research, legacy NoSQL solutions often struggle at hyperscale.

Prior to 2008, whatever your database question, the answer was always,"Oracle"—or sometimes, "MySQL" or, "SQL Server." The relational database management system (RDBMS) model—really a triumvirate of technologies combining Codd's relational data model, the ACID transaction model, and the SQL language—dominated database management systems completely.

"I've looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down and still somehow, it's cloud's illusions I recall, I really don't know clouds at all." These are lyrics from a song created in the late 1960s by Joni Mitchell. It's doubtful that the songwriter envisioned computer systems in the clouds, yet the words somehow ring true today. Cloud computing has revealed countless new dimensions to IT. We have public clouds, private clouds, distributed clouds, but most importantly, we have hybrid, multi-cloud architectures. However, the idea of "the cloud" remains as elusive as the artist who wrote the song.

You've probably heard of ETL, or heard somebody talk about "ee-tee-elling" their data. It's a technology from the days of big iron for extracting data from many relational databases, transforming it to a corporate standard schema, and loading it into another unified relational database. That target database, the enterprise data warehouse (EDW), was intended to be a "single source of truth" for the enterprise. It included all the data that IT deemed fit (and available) for decision makers to use.
