Database Management

Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) continue to do the heavy lifting in data management, while newer database management systems are taking on prominent roles as well. NoSQL database systems such as Key-Value, Column Family, Graph, and Document databases, are gaining acceptance due to their ability to handle unstructured and semi-structured data. MultiValue, sometimes called the fifth NoSQL database, is also a well-established database management technology which continues to evolve to address new enterprise requirements.

To serve the data analytics and applications for business growth and operational needs, data lakes are being widely adopted as the data infrastructure because of their scalability and flexibility. Data lakes are strong at parking petabytes of data and production delivery as a result of their "schema-on-read" structure. But every coin has two sides. Data lakes, as a semantically flexible data store and bypassed governance efforts, have been seen as muddy swamps and inefficient in data management.

Data archiving is an important aspect of data governance and data management. Not only does archiving help to reduce hardware and storage costs, but it is also an important aspect of long-term data retention and a key participant in regu­latory compliance efforts. When long-term data retention is imposed on your data—anything more than a couple of years—then archiving it can be the most optimal solution.

Data plays a vital role in any successful business. Protect­ing this data is mission-critical, and it falls to database administrators (DBAs) to organize, maintain, and secure it. The most effective way for DBAs to protect data is through database backups, a process designed to copy the data and schema from an existing database and save it else­where for future retrieval. Like any process in IT, however, there are a few factors to consider when devising a database backup strategy to ensure it meets your business needs.
