Submission + - SQL Creator Monty Widenius about NoSQL and Big Data (

Julia Wunder writes: "As most IT watchers know, Big Data is perceived as so large that it's difficult to process using relational databases and software techniques. Of course, the relational model and SQL dominate today's database landscape. But on the other side there are databases built without relations, made for higher scalability. We asked the expert in the database area, Monty Widenius, about the current and future state of SQL, NoSQL and Big Data. And his answers were somewhat surprising. As the author of the original version of the open-source MySQL database, and one of the founders of the community-developed branch of the MySQL database, MariaDB, his take on Big Data bucks the conventional wisdom that large-scale data must abandon SQL databases."
