So why another database when there are so many databases out there? Even we think of this on a daily basis, whether having BlobCity is a value addition to all the databases out there, or we are just another database. Time and again we keep coming back to concluding, that BlobCity is a very important addition to the entire database eco system. Says Sanket Sarang, Founder, CTO & Creator of BlobCity DB.
In short BlobCity offers you the ability of multi-model storage. With BlobCity in your data centres, you can store all your documents in one place. With support for JSON, XML, CSV, SQL, Log data, Plaintext, Rich Text Format (RTF), PDF, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, GIS, Syslog, Image, Video, Audio; we can't think of any other format in which you would have data. But if you do, you can always extend BlobCity by writing a custom data interpreter to also support your format of data storage.
So does your company across its various departments have data in at least 8 of the formats mentioned above. Most do and if so BlobCity is your only option for collective data analytics.
The industry has spent years making databases that are fast, ones that scale, ACID compliance, distributed, relational support, graphical databases, analytics optimised, flash storage optimised, in-memory processing, and map-reduce for data lakes. But what we have not done is spent time creating a database that does it all.
We at BlobCity have spent time and continue spending time making a database that does it all. And why because it is a need. It is not practically possible to have one document database (MongoDB), then another for data lake (Hadoop), then another columnar storage (Cassandra), then another graphical database (Neo4J), XML storage (MarkLogic) and yet another for in-memory processing (MemSQL). If an organisation needs technology to cater to all these functions, then it is also important that all these functions are available in a single database (BlobCity).
