To my taste, the most glaring mis-rankings in the 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Database Management are that it is too positive on Kognitio and too negative on Infobright. Secondarily, it is too negative on HP Vertica, and too positive on ParAccel and Actian/VectorWise.
Some good commentary. Find Gartner’s doc here.

I recently published an updated version but noted that there were a group of database vendors that had emerged in 2012 that didn’t easily fit into the segments we’d created.
It’s so much better… Good overview for anybody interested in understanding the DB world beyond just whatever one or two products or technologies they already know.
If all these new DBMS technologies are so scalable, why are Oracle and DB2 still on top of TPC-C? A roadmap to end their dominance

A quick aggregation of Cloud Database (or DBaaS) related articles I found in my feed reader…
- Native Cloud Databases – Why Should You Care?
- NuoDB’s Jim Starkey is Creating a Brave New World by Rethinking Databases for the Cloud
- DBaaS vs. DaaS vs. Cloud Storage – What’s the difference?
- Postgres Plus® Cloud Server – for a different kind of cloud.
I totally missed it when NimbusDB renamed themselves to NuoDB…

There are a few articles collecting dust in my feed reader from a period a couple months ago when I didn’t have much time staying up to date on what’s happening… here’s the rundown of the most important stuff about Hadoop.
- Hardware for Hadoop
- Why you would want an appliance — and when you wouldn’t
- Some notes on Hadoop (mainly) and appliances
- EMC Puts Database & Hadoop in Same Big Data Analytics Box

And another one leaving the relational world for their DBaaS offering. It’s probably easier to manage as a service than Oracle…
Today SAP announced that they are using MongoDB as a core component of SAP’s platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering. MongoDB was selected for the enterprise content management (ECM) section of the platform, as its flexibility and scalability will enable SAP to scale its content management service on its PaaS offering to meet customers’ requirements while managing data from different applications

It turns out that Oracle’s new small appliance isn’t really an Exadata Mini-Me. Rather, the Oracle Database Appliance is — well, it seems to be a box with an Oracle DBMS in it. Plus Oracle RAC and so on.
