I saw this database landscape 2014 overview from “451 Research” with an very nice visualization of all database/data store products out there.
It also comes with an index overview with all the database names, products, included…
As mentioned in the blog post Updated Data Platforms Landscape Map – October 2014 you can use it for:
- compare capabilities, offerings, and functionality.
- understand where providers intersect and diverge.
- identify a shortlist of choices to suit enterprise needs.
For me it was cool to see how many products and targeted product area’s are out there nowadays.
I miss some of the, for me / I.M.H.O., obvious ones in this overview like:
and/or maybe Oracle Berkeley DB alternatives (including one for XML support).
I am not sure what the limiting factors were to end up in this overview, but if you have a Oracle database already “in-da-house” then you have already more functionality inhouse then you might know. Apparently people of “451 Research” missed some of the mayor XML players / solutions out there. I have helped with, or advise on, Oracle XMLDB XML environments that where tens of Tera bytes big regarding its XML content alone…
Have fun with this cool overview.
