It seemed like, two years ago, you couldn't read 3 articles on the web without reading about the wonders of some new NoSQL system: MongoDB, Cassandra, DynamoDB, Riak, CouchDB, ...
Was that trend really just a hot flash that came, flamed, and burned out?
I think a number of NoSQL installations in fact became solid production systems, running regularly and powering the web.
But nowadays it seems like mostly what you read about is how people are taking traditional databases and incorporating interesting ideas from those NoSQL systems into the legacy database technology.
Am I misreading things?
