Top 7 Considerations When Evaluating NoSQL Databases
Working with data is a core function of software development. When organizations struggle with demands to accelerate release cycles, extract insights from data, and adopt distributed cloud-based architectures, it’s often because they’re being held back by rigid relational databases. The solution is to adopt more flexible non-relational data systems, also known as NoSQL databases.
There are multiple types of NoSQL databases to consider, but which one is right for your environment? In this white paper, we’ll explore the differences between the most common non-relational databases: graph, key-value, wide-column, and documents.
