Why use NoSQL? Innovative companies like AT&T, GE, and PayPal have successfully transitioned from relational to NoSQL for their critical web, mobile, and IoT applications. By understanding where to introduce NoSQL, how to model and access the data, and how to manage and monitor a distributed database, you can do the same. This white paper explains the need for non-relational databases, describes advantages of NoSQL, and clarifies the important difference between SQL and NoSQL databases.
In this report, Altoros compares the architecture of three leading NoSQL databases: MongoDB, DataStax Enterprise, and Couchbase Server.
Application requirements have fundamentally changed, and traditional RDBMS technology has failed to keep pace. As a result, the use of NoSQL technology is rising rapidly. Massive change is underway, disrupting the database status quo.
