Excitement around so-called 'NoSQL' data systems is reaching feverish levels of hype, but how much is just fashion and how much really matters? Do we really need all of this new technology or could we do this with say, MySQL? Here we describe a globally deployed in-memory data system based on MySQL's NDB engine. Compared head to head, this system will match the performance of several popular NoSQL systems without sacrificing consistency or SQL support. We'll talk about what NoSQL is really good for and who really needs it - and why.

Principal Architect, PayPal, Inc.
I work for PayPal, where I'm focused on systems architecture for large-scale payment systems. I'm also interested in big data, microelectronics, computational astronomy, bonsai trees, and social business. In my copious spare time I play the piano and feed my cat in Santa Clara, California.
