Distributed Databases

The presentation at this month's GTALUG meeting was an overview of distributed databases and some of the of the concepts around them. The subject inevitably wandered into the debate between RDBMS which are accessed using SQL, and the so-called NoSQL databases, which essentially store key-value pairs. Chris Browne, the presenter, is deeply involved with the PostgreSQL, so he left no doubt as to which side of the debate he sits. This debate would fill an entire presentation and Chris deftly managed to avoid letting it derail his presentation.
