Funny. How people can become disillusioned with Open Source software when new paradigms emerge. New software is never a panacea for all your ills. You’ve got to treat NoSQL software with exactly the same level of detailed planning that you would for your current, business critical RDBMS. If it doesn’t provide the same level of reliability – then don’t deploy it! Some swearing in German, Not Suitable for the Workplace (NSFTW).
