DevOps continues to transform the way companies build and deploy applications through agile methodologies, better communication and collaboration, faster feedback loops and greater automation. However, even the best DevOps initiatives can fall victim to data bottlenecks, from challenges provisioning data quickly and easily, to synchronizing application and database changes and, in some cases, a serious lack of cooperation between developers and database administrators.

In the big data world of today, issues abound. People discuss structured data versus unstructured data; graph versus JSON versus columnar data stores; even batch processing versus streaming. Differences between each of these kinds of things are important. How they are used can help direct how best to store content for use. Therefore, deep understanding of usage is critical in determining the flavor of data persistence employed.

We are living in the age of polyglot persistence, which really just means that it makes sense to store data using the technology that best matches the way the data will be used by applications. The age of trying to force everything into a relational DBMS is over, and we now have NoSQL, NewSQL, in-memory, and Hadoop-based offerings that are being used to store data. But you really should also be looking at the algorithmic approach offered by Ancelus Database.

Database downtime can inflict a fatal wound on the life of a business and having a trusted backup solution that can ensure that databases can be back up and running quickly in the event of an outage is critical. With long downtimes simply unacceptable, organizations seek solutions with capabilities such as the ability to manage backups seamlessly, manage and monitor backups, ensure data integrity, scale efficiently restore quickly to any point in time, and provide security features to stay in compliance with local geographic and industry mandates.

The increased requirements of modern analytical workloads, querying billions of rows on demand, are a challenge for relational databases because they're optimized for transactional workloads. While transactional workload queries tend to be row-oriented (e.g., return every column in a single row), analytical workload queries tend to be column-oriented (e.g., return the aggregate of a single column in every row). By storing columns of data rather than rows of data, columnar databases optimize for analytical workloads without sacrificing the relational model and SQL.

The introduction of transactions in MongoDB 4.0 represents possibly the most significant change in MongoDB's architecture since its original release.  The lack of a transactional capability previously defined the capabilities of the database: Without transactions, MongoDB was blocked from consideration for a wide range of application scenarios.  With the implementation of transactions, MongoDB can for the first time truly claim to be a general purpose DBMS.

Our data capture and retention requirements continue to grow at a very fast rate, which brings new entrants in the SQL and NoSQL market all the time. However, not all data is created equal. Companies recognize that disparate data can and should be treated differently. That means the way we persist that data can be extremely varied. Now, enter applications that need to access all that data across a very heterogeneous landscape, and we get to the point where we're reinventing the data access wheel every time someone needs to spin up another application or introduce another data source.

It may seem strange to see MongoDB expanding the very features of the relational databases that it originally rejected. In the last few releases, we've seen implementation of joins, strict schemas, and now ACID transactions. However, what this indicates is that MongoDB is increasingly contending for serious enterprise database workloads: MongoDB is expanding the scope of its ambitions.

This has grown more difficult day-by-day, as the amount of data collected by organizations grows exponentially. GDPR is a good forcing function to spur them to dig into this problem before it gets worse.
