Re: NoSQL Access not the same as schema flexibility
Yes, you are correct. I did mention scalability, which almost goes without saying when you're talking about a distributed, multi-data-center database. But you are correct in pointing out that scalability is perhaps the top calling card of MySQL Cluster. However, the discussion of the product's in-memory and NoSQL roots put the emphasis on other performance charachteristics.

NoSQL Access not the same as schema flexibility
Of course being like a NoSQL database, in regards to data access, is not the same as being a NoSQL database when it comes to ease of development and schema flexibility in practice. Lots of relational databases now offer management of JSON and other "new" data types, but you can't be all things to all people. MySQL Cluster's first calling is high-performance, high-availability relational database applications at scale.
