The Register Covers the Revolv DB Migration

MongoDB Atlas is a database as a service that makes it easy to deploy, manage, and scale MongoDB. So you can focus on innovation, not operations. Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

The Register's Jack Clark wrote a short piece on Revolv's database migration based on my blog post from last week and an interview we did on Friday. I found the conclusion to the article to be a fairly phrased and well-put summary of the NoSQL/SQL issue:

We here on El Reg's database cluster are sure that NoSQL technologies have some great benefits (the flexibility of a document-oriented system like MongoDB, or the resilient ring-storage structure of Riak, for instance), but many startups risk being spiked by arcane problems that come about as they scale. We recommend they take a hard look at traditional systems and work out if they can have a relationship with them. [That's enough—Ed.]

Thanks, El Reg, for stating the point so clearly.


MongoDB Atlas is the best way to run MongoDB on AWS — highly secure by default, highly available, and fully elastic. Get started free. Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
