Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the NoSQL Zone (Apr. 25 to May 1). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. The Future of MongoDB: Is the Clock Ticking?

In "Why the Clock is Ticking for MongoDB," Robert Haas examines a recent ZDNet interview with MongoDB CEO Max Schireson in which Schireson argues that relational databases are not long for this world. According to Haas, though, the opposite is true: MongoDB won't last.

2. Redis 2.8.9 Released
