    Chirag — thanks for the article! It’s a good summary.

    At Drawn to Scale (, we’re actually tackling the main problem you mentioned, “Design a data store that has ubiquitous interface for the application developers and is independent of consistency models, upfront data modeling (schema), and access algorithms. ”

    Our new data platform is easy, fast, and scalable. You don’t have to know what’s going on under the hood or in the cloud. It Just Works 🙂

    We’re enabling businesses to focus on building what makes them great, instead of building a data infrastructure.

    Hey Chirag,

    NoSQL being not SQL was a major issue in the past, and it was a major reason why Gigaspaces and other players in the market had major issues in the past getting into the market. However, the market has changed. NoSQL is not a niche anymore, backed by FB, Linkedin, Amazon and Google it becames a mainstream.
    Please notice that in the near future several startups will solve this gap between SQL interface and NoSQL flexibility (contant me if you need more information)

    Keep Performing,
    Moshe Kaplan
