business book: The Membership Economy


"The Membership Economy shows how nimble companies that focus on ongoing, formal relationships over one-time transactions are thriving. By renting, lending, or offering access instead of just “ownership,” organizations can leapfrog industry leaders."

Azure Cosmos DB: graph data representation

Besides various NoSQL interfaces, standard SQL and Hadoop Hive are coming soon.
And besides SSDs, "classic" storage options from Azure Tables are also coming.
It will also be included in Azure Stack, that can run on premise.
So it will be "one database for everything" :)

A technical overview of Azure Cosmos DB | Blog | Microsoft Azure

"Azure Cosmos DB natively supports multiple data models. The core type system of Azure Cosmos DB’s database engine is atom-record-sequence (ARS) based. Atoms consist of a small set of primitive types e.g. string, bool, number etc., records are structs and sequences are arrays consisting of atoms, records or sequences. The database engine of Azure Cosmos DB is capable of efficiently translating and projecting the data models onto the ARS based data model. The core data model of Azure Cosmos DB is natively accessible from dynamically typed programming languages and can be exposed as-is using JSON or other similar representations. The design also enables natively supporting popular database APIs for data access and query. Azure Cosmos DB’s database engine currently supports DocumentDB SQL, MongoDB, Azure Table Storage, and Gremlin graph query API. We intend to extend it to support other popular database APIs as well. The key benefit is that developers can continue to build their applications using popular OSS APIs but get all the benefits of a battle-tested and fully managed, globally distributed database system."

inserts the "Thomas" vertex into the graph
:> g.addV('person').property('id', 'thomas.1').property('firstName', 'Thomas').property('lastName', 'Andersen').property('age', 44)

inserts a "knows" edge between Thomas and Robin
:> g.V('thomas.1').addE('knows').to(g.V('robin.1'))

query returns the "person" vertices
:> g.V().hasLabel('person').order().by('firstName', decr)

"What operating systems do friends of Thomas use?"
:> g.V('thomas.1').out('knows').out('uses').out('runsos').group().by('name').by(count())
