A relatively new NoSQL data store on the scene is Aerospike. While we've touched on RethinkDB  and Datomic, Aerospike hasn't been covered much on DZone but I thought I'd get everyone up to speed on this newer store:

[Aerospike is] planning to combine SQL, key value, and document and graph database technologies in a single database by bringing together its Citrusleaf NoSQL database with the acquired AlchemyDB NewSQL project.

 -- Matthew Aslett, 451 Group 


The CTO at Aerospike also had some interesting commentary at this year's Hadoop Summit 2013.  They're focused on pushing the limits of SSD/Flash in-memory data processing and providing "Storm speed" (perhaps he's referring to Twitter Storm?) which is about 10 million messages a second.
