While the emerging constellation of next-generation data architectures—fabric, mesh, and cloud—is extremely appealing, it's still full of unknowns. These approaches present opportunities for greater data democratization, but also increased complexity. Understanding the distinctions between data fabric and mesh are also important before moving to this architecture.

Ellen Mary Challans, better known by her pen name Mary Renault, was attributed with saying, "There is only one kind of shock worse than the totally unexpected: the expected for which one has refused to prepare."

Modern applications have increasingly leveraged Kubernetes as the "OS of the cloud" because of its ability to abstract the underlying cloud platform and coordinate the activities of multiple docker containers. Kubernetes does indeed radically simplify the deployment and administration of multi-service distributed applications. However, it has a significant learning curve, and maintaining a largescale Kubernetes cluster can be daunting.

In the last Mongo Matters column, we looked at MongoDB's new SQL interface for querying data in MongoDB Atlas. Almost all of the "NoSQL" databases today support some form of SQL interface in order to leverage the multitude of SQL-based BI tools and the wealth of SQL expertise in the data analytics market. This "SQL for NoSQL" usually bemuses SQL aficionados and is often seen as some sort of repudiation of the document database concept.

In a Continuous Deployment/Continuous Integration (CD/CI) world, most commentary dances around references to database changes as being a bottleneck, hard, awkward, or even painful. The reasoning supporting this perspective of suffering seems to arise from a desire for all changes to be fairly isolated matters. After all, a new function within an API, driving a new behavior on a screen, can just slip in, start executing, and life continues.

PostgreSQL arguably has been somewhat overlooked by database commentators. PostgreSQL doesn't have the massive marketing machine of Oracle or Microsoft, and it lacks the "new kid on the block" appeal of MongoDB or CockroachDB. However, PostgreSQL continues to increase in importance in terms of deployments and mindshare. This year, PostgreSQL overtook MongoDB as the "most loved" and "most wanted" database platform. Developer enthusiasm is probably the strongest leading indicator of future deployments since developers, more than anyone else, get to decide what technologies are used in an application.
