NoSQL databases are sometimes also referred to as non-rational, NoSQL DB or non-SQL. This stems from the fact that they can handle vast amounts of unstructured data in different ways compared to SQL (relational database) with tables and rows.
The technology itself has been around since the 1960s, but it has become much more popular recently, as a result of the much-changed landscape where developers now need to adapt in different ways than in the past. Larger quantities of data can now be handled, and different types of data now come from the cloud, mobile devices, social media and mainframe computers.
This could be data, such as popular social media posts or more socially critical data, where it would be critical if it were to be lost. NoSQL has therefore been developed to enable developers to quickly develop database systems for storing unstructured information.
Benefits of NoSQL:
– Agile development – Handles data with great flexibility – Scaling as needed
