Tool Lets SQL and NoSQL Make Nice in the Cloud

Maybe the traditionally acrimonious SQL and NoSQL camps will end up as one big happy family after all.

A new beta tool from Quest Software lets users mix and match traditional SQL data and non-relational NoSQL data in the cloud.

Toad for Cloud Databases, released in beta, aims “to put NoSQL databases within reach of traditional relational database developers,” according to a company spokesman.

CTOEdge.com said Quest seeks “to act as a peacemaker between the emerging NoSQL databases and proponents of traditional SQL database software.”

Toad uses a GUI with visual query and data access capabilities to let users “query and report on non-relational data, migrate data in both cloud and relational databases from one to the other, and create queries that combine the two,” the company said. It works with Amazon SimpleDB, Microsoft Azure Table services, Apache HBase and ODBC relational databases.
