NoSQL Database of the Year

A new poll last year, and a very close race.

After much delebration, I voted for Membase Server considering the interesting direction it took this year. Very interesting category. As expected almost all saw a good time in 2011, specially Mongo, Redis and Riak.

It's really hard to pick just one, as many fit different niches. I voted for CouchDB as I like it's replication method and the fact that there is no one master node. Couch is also able to scale down as well as up.

Of course Hadoop and HBase are amazing if you need truly tremendous scale.

I've heard good things about Cassandra as well, but haven't used it. It seems to run Facebook OK.

I have been using MongoDB for the past few months, at work, and it's been awesome. But I feel so torn having to choose between Redis and MongoDB; I love Redis dearly, and as a caching server, there's nothing else out there that can even come close, IMHO. However, I would never - ever - use Redis as a database, in the same way I would use PostgreSQL or MongoDB as a database.
