Re: Don't forget about IBM Informix
I can see you are under a rock.
Informix is legendary in its ease of use. Don't believe? Ask folks who actually use the product.
Want to talk cost? Lets take Mongo... if you never need to do a backup, then sure, its pretty cheap. But, want to backup your data? That's gonna cost you. When you add in support costs and the costs of building and deploying enterprise class applications, Informix is very competitive. You want to go cheap? Informix runs on ARM & Quark servers too.
Plus, you get 30 years of experience on supporting a product that is deployed everywhere... telecom, retail, banking, gaming and a great and knowledgable users group community.
What's your definition of NoSQL or NewSQL? Just because a product has been around awhile doesn't disqualify it from being considered if it does most of what the other's claim to do. Why so narrow focused?
