Martin Fowler discusses how the concept of polyglot programming, using many languages for a single enterprise application, is bleeding into the realm of data persistence. He gives an example of how various pieces of an application may store data differently, and advises that you should no longer assume your persistence layer is relational, or that all of your data will be held within the same store.

I'd be interested to see examples of more applications using polyglot persistence, it's something I might consider for the future.
