Moving from Relational to NoSQL

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.

How to Choose a Database for Your Mobile Apps

Today’s consumers rely on their mobile apps no matter where they are. If your apps are sluggish and slow or don’t work at all when there’s no internet connection, your customers will start looking for other apps that work all the time. To help you provide the always-on experience customers demand, database solutions like Couchbase Mobile have added synchronization and offline capabilities to their mobile database offerings.

 

This white paper helps you choose the best mobile database for your needs based on 6 key evaluation questions:

 

  • Does it have support for the right platforms?
  • Is data secure at rest and in motion?
  • Do you have a flexible data model?
  • How does your database handle pesky conflicts?
  • Does your database sync at the right times?
  • Does your database sync using the right topology?

We also help you answer one last critical question: Should you build or should you buy? Get your white paper now for the answers you need.

Developing Applications with Cross Data Center Replication (XDCR)

Mission critical applications need a database that is always on. While intra-cluster replication helps with server failures giving you high availability, your system still remains at risk from catastrophic failures. You may also need a way to improve the response time for users when they are globally distributed by replicating information closer to them.
