MongoDB – Why Does NoSQL Matter?

“In recent years, the drumbeat of vendors proclaiming the
ascendancy of NoSQL has become increasingly loud. One of the NoSQL
vendors that is seeing business results from its NoSQL solution is
10gen, which is the lead commercial sponsor behind the open source
MongoDB NoSQL database.

“We’re seeing the NoSQL space really taking off now and it’s
being used in a significant way by a lot of people, including a lot
of large enterprises,” Dwight Merriman, CEO and co-founder of
10gen, told InternetNews.com. “So big Internet companies like
Craigslist and Shutterfly as well as big companies like SAP,
Telefonica and LexisNexis are using it.”
