The term "database" has a lot of baggage but it essentially refers to a tool, external to our applications, that we use for persistence, performance and shared access. This talk introduces the new and vibrant ecosystem of Node Databases, inspired by LevelDB. Taking a cue from Node.js philosophy, Node Databases are built around a small, extensible core of storage primitives with a rapidly growing list of extensions that provide more complex functionality.
