Distributed SQL databases are the new home for systems of record in both hybrid and public clouds, maintaining the same relational model and query language that have served millions of applications and billions of users. However, unlike traditional relational databases like Oracle or SQL Server, they distribute reads and writes, query processing, and even indexing throughout a cluster of database nodes. And unlike NoSQL databases like MongoDB or Cassandra, they use a standard SQL dialect and provide real transactional integrity.
There is no doubt that distributed SQL databases are an excellent choice for applications that require elastic scale, performance at high capacity, very high availability and disaster recovery capabilities.
