Making the Shift from Relational to NoSQL

Length:  6 pages

While the hype surrounding “NoSQL” (non-relational) database technology has become deafening, there is real substance beneath the often exaggerated claims. But like most things in life, the benefits come at a cost. Developers accustomed to data modeling and application development against relational database technology will need to approach things differently. This white paper highlights the differences between a relational database and a distributed document-oriented database, the implications for application development, and guidance that can ease the transition from relational to NoSQL database technology.

Why make the shift?

Change is hard and rarely undertaken unless it alleviates significant pain. The white paper Why NoSQL provides a comprehensive look at the motivating challenges that have led to the emergence and rapid adoption of NoSQL database technology. In a nutshell, the transition has been spurred by the need for flexibility – both in the scaling model and the data model.
