There are a lot of database products on the market. So why did we build HarperDB?
The simple answer is that we were frustrated by the options available to us on the market. We felt that the market was highly fragmented due to the fact that most databases are designed to address specific workloads. Every time we found a strong product for scale, it lacked analytical capability and we found the reverse to often be true as well. Additionally, we know that big data is complex; however, we feel that most database management software products shift that complexity onto the developer instead of handling it internally.
