DB-Engines.com: A very helpful database technology comparison site

February 28, 2018 Comments Off on DB-Engines.com: A very helpful database technology comparison site

I’ve been working with all sorts of databases for a really long time, and I’ve never seen the industry as dynamic and diverse as it is right now. Unfortunately, if you’re evaluating databases – relational, NoSQL, or otherwise – it can be very difficult to obtain a high-level, vendor-neutral view of your options.

Lately I’ve been spending a fair amount of time on the DB-Engines website in support of some research initiatives that I’m carrying out. DB-Engines provides a wealth of really useful information, including:

  • Database rankings
  • A compendium of database solutions
  • A glossary of key terms
  • Side-by-side product comparisons

If you’re interested in learning more about which database technology is best for you and your organization, it’s definitely worth dropping by.

SmartBear, makers of ReadyAPI (the most comprehensive and widely adopted Web service and REST API testing platform) have just released an excellent, free tool for carrying out quick and easy interactions with your API.

Swagger Inspector does a superb job of working with APIs (all HTTP methods are available), and it supports parameters, authentication & headers, and message payloads. It even generates OpenAPI documentation. If you’re designing, developing, testing, or simply using an API, you’ll want to check out this exciting new offering.

We’ll be incorporating Swagger Inspector into our SoapUI Pro training as well as our multi-model database design training course.
