And the Beatdown Goes On

Reg Developer has an article titled 'Backlash starts against 'sexy' databases.' Ryan Park had a great writeup of 'Top 10 Reasons to Avoid the SimpleDB Hype.'

I don't think of SimpleDB as sexy, but it and other directory-service-esque-data-repositories are still being hyped. The article discusses how the relational nerds are defending our ground... Ok, that makes it sound better than it is; but the article is worth reading.

Of course, I am not surprised by any of this.
