Top 5 Considerations When Evaluating NoSQL Databases: Conclusion


Commercial Support and Community Strength Choosing a database is a major investment. Once an application has been built on a given database, it is costly, challenging and risky to migrate it to a different database. Companies usually invest in a small number of core technologies so they can develop expertise, integrations and best practices that can be amortized across many projects. Non-relational […]

Top 5 Considerations When Evaluating NoSQL Databases: #4 the APIs


 APIs There is no standard for interfacing with non-relational systems. Each system presents different designs and  capabilities for application development teams. The maturity of the API can have  major implications for the time and cost required to develop and maintain the application and database.   Idiomatic Drivers There are a number of popular programming languages, and each provides different paradigms for… Read More Top 5 Considerations When Evaluating NoSQL Databases: #4 the APIs

Top 5 Considerations When Evaluating NoSQL Databases: #3 the Consistency Model


Consistency Model Most non-relational systems typically maintain multiple copies of the data for availability and scalability purposes. These databases can impose different guarantees on the consistency of the data across copies. Non-relational databases tend to be categorized as either consistent or eventually consistent. With a consistent system, writes by the application are immediately visible in… Read More Top 5 Considerations When Evaluating NoSQL Databases: #3 the Consistency Model
