Created at Facebook, Cassandra has emerged as a useful hybrid of a column-oriented database with a key-value store. Grouping families gives the familiar feeling of tables and provides good replication and consistency for easy linear scaling. Cassandra is most effective when used for managing really big volumes of data (the kind that don’t fit in a single server), such as Web/click analytics and measurements from the Internet of Things – writing to Cassandara is extremely fast. It provides a familiar interface (CQL, reminiscent of SQL) and the learning curve isn’t too steep for users. Cassandra also comes with tunable consistency settings.

The days of the single source of truth, one database for the entire enterprise, are over. Now even a relatively simple mobile application demands more than one database. The good news is that we have entered a golden age of open-source NoSQL databases. Developers have great and readily available open-source technologies with robust communities behind them at their fingertips.

The difficulty is knowing which database is right for which use case. While a number of options are available, according to Redis Labs, these are five NoSQL databases that developers should be familiar with.

Redis Labs offers enterprise-class Redis and Memcached for developers. Their fully-managed cloud services - Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud - deliver top performance in a highly-available, infinitely scalable, predictable and stable manner — freeing developers from dealing with nodes, clusters, scaling, data-persistence and failure recovery.
