ESG Report Finds Not Only SQL Database Market with Over $300M Invested, Challenges Classic Relational Databases
MILFORD, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
The Enterprise Strategy Group (News - Alert) (ESG), a leading IT research, analysis,
and strategy firm, today released a Market
Landscape report covering the evolving enterprise database market.
This database market, as observed in the report entitled Beyond
RDBMS: Not Only SQL Databases Challenge the RDBMS Status Quo,
has previously been dominated by well-established older relational
databases (RDBMS). However, a large group of newer databases, commonly
referred to as Not Only SQL Databases, purpose-designed for post-2000
era applications, have begun to seriously challenge the "one size fits
all" older RDBMS. With over $300 millon invested in this market, the
movement to adopt these new-style databases is gaining enterprise
The author of the report, ESG Senior Principal Analyst Evan Quinn,
states, "Innovations in data management from Web 2.0 companies, and
database innovations coming from several open source projects, have
provided the creative fuel for a wide range of vendors, from over a
dozen start-ups, as well as long-established classic RDBMS suppliers, to
develop and offer a wide range of databases to directly address big data
analytics, cloud and web apps, graph analytics, and extreme transaction
The multifaceted nature of this market's structure and its traits are
covered in the report, and everything from cloud databases to NewSQL
databases are highlighted in this comprehensive portrayal of the Not
Only SQL database landscape. In addition to technology advances, Not
Only SQL databases also offer challenges to classic RDBMS databases by
typically being more affordable and offering simpler licensing options
as well as easy to access try-before-you-buy options.
"Vendors of Not Only SQL databases not only offer technologies that
natively take advantage of modern infrastructures with inexpensive and
expansive memory, multi-core CPUs, and recent advancements in storage,"
Quinn observes, "the vendors' go-to-market approach potentially changes
the economics of the database business."
