Practical Cassandra: A Developer's Approach book by Russell Bradberry and Eric Lubow, is a developer's guide to build applications using Cassandra NoSQL database. InfoQ spoke with the authors about the book, Cassandra data model, design considerations and how Cassandra performs concurrency and versioning of the data sets.
In Key Value data stores, data is represented as a collection of key–value pairs. The key–value model is one of the simplest non-trivial data models, and richer data models are implemented on top of it. InfoQ spoke with Casey Rosenthal from Basho team about the data modeling concepts and best practices when using these NoSQL databases for data management.
SQL-on-Hadoop technologies include a SQL layer or a SQL database over Hadoop. These solutions are becoming popular recently as they solve the data management issues of Hadoop and provide a scale-out alternative for traditional RDBMSs. InfoQ spoke with Rich Reimer, VP of Marketing and Product Management at Splice Machine about the architecture and data patterns for SQL in Hadoop databases.
NoSQL databases are eliminating the impedance mismatch between developers and traditional data models. This article looks at how MarkLogic provides NoSQL benefits with transactional support. 2

Graph data modeling requires a different paradigm than modeling with Relational or other NoSQL databases. InfoQ spoke with Jim Webber and Ian Robinson about data modeling with Graph databases.
InfoQ spoke with Anuj Sahni, Principal Product Manager at Oracle about the time series data, NoSQL databases and best practices for managing this type of data.
For the last four years MS has been working on the first rewrite of SQL Server’s query execution since 1998. The goal is to offer NoSQL-like speeds with the capabilities of a relational database. 2
