Does everyone hate MongoDB? - 25 Sept 2012

Headline Problem: Too many people are ranting about MongoDB.

Mistake: Too few data points. Overly defensive of MongoDB.

Comments: You should probably learn more about Riak. The "From MongoDB to Riak" is light on details but isn't really hand-waving. The author is saying that having a masterless database results in less fretting. http://wiki.basho.com/Riak-Compared-to-MongoDB.html

Also, why two rage faces? Can't you get your point across without resorting to silly memes?

Now that Couchbase Server 2.0 is beta, it's a reliable alternative to MongoDB. Same JSON goodness, different set of user stories. (hint: less rants). Get the beta download here: http://www.couchbase.com/couchbase-server/beta

If you (like me) don't know what's the difference between CouchDB and CouchBase, look here: http://www.couchbase.com/couchdb

Could you at least put a disclaimer in your spam that says you're a cofounder of Couchbase?

We're running 1.8.x to great success. Currently pondering if we want to test with 2.0 or just wait to start testing until 2.0 final is released.
