Google Spanner in the NewSQL works?


Re: Not particularly interesting

Really? I think that's true for NoSQL but there isn't a clear leader for transactional MySQL workloads. There seem to be a lot of strategies, and there seem to be a lot of bolt-on solutions to MySQL that implement some kind of middleware sharding layer. There are very few truly scalable (shared nothing) strategies that also provide the guarantees of ACID, transactions without caveats, and all the things you would want from your operational data store (e.g. consistent backups). ClustrixDB seems to provide that (as well as some measure of MySQL Compatibility), and NuoDB (though I haven't tried it because I'd have to rewrite my app)
