RavenDB vs MongoDB: Which is Better? This White Paper compares the two leading NoSQL Document Databases on 9 features to find out which is the best solution for your next project.  

This is a very good article on HBase .   As Jim says in his article, after reading it you should be better able to make an educated decision regarding when you might want to use HBase vs when you’d be better off with a “traditional” database.

This is also a nice primer on NoSQL in general (at least for system like Cassandra, etc).

What I really like best about this article is how Jim breaks out the terminology and working it to explain what HBase does properly.

Aggregations provide vital intelligence to the success of a business. Crush the challenge of providing real time aggregations for daily, weekly, and monthly totals without having to tie up your servers.
