Google Open-Sources NoSQL Database Called LevelDB

In May Google open-sourced a BigTable-inspired key-value database library called LevelDB under a BSD license. It was created by Jeff Dean and Sanjay Ghemawat of the BigTable project at Google. It’s available for Unix based systems, Mac OS X, Windows, and Android.

Although it first appeared in Google Code months ago, a blog post from Google earlier this week made the project more widely known.
