PostgreSQL, the NoSQL Database

Author: Reuven Lerner | Files under syndicated

One of the most interesting trends in the computer world during the past
few years has been the rapid growth of NoSQL databases. The term may

wasn’t until I had a very large Web site rollout fail miserably that I
started to research a method for load-testing servers before releasing
