    About MongoDB: Backup or Replication?

  • NoSQL Database Adoption Trends - A NoSQL Comparison

    While SQL databases are incredibly useful tools, their monopoly is coming to an end. NoSQL databases have been getting lot of attention over the last few years for their performance, scalability, schema flexibility and analytics capabilities. While relational databases are still a good choice for certain cases - like structured data and applications that require ACID transactions - NoSQL databases are better suited for use cases where:

    NoSQL database: about quality attributes. Understanding first before choosing

    Last week we talked about the big differences between NoSQL databases and the consequent responsibility on software architects to pick out the appropriate one for each project. You can read the post here: “The ultimate NoSQL comparison (Beyond MongoDB and CrunchDB)”.

    NoSQL databases: a Must for The Internet of Things

Nowadays Big Data is snowballing and the impact on traditional relational database management systems is being significant. In this new context databases need to adopt and meet these new requirements as greater data processing agility and multiple analytical tools.
