Why NoSQL? Your database options in the new non-relational world

The continual increase in web, mobile and IoT applications, alongside emerging trends shifting online consumer behavior and new classes of data, is causing developers to reevaluate how their data is stored and managed. Today’s applications require a database that is capable of providing a scalable, flexible solution to efficiently and safely manage the massive flow of data to and from a global user base.

Developers and IT alike are finding it difficult, and sometimes even impossible, to quickly incorporate all of this data into the relational model while dynamically scaling to maintain the performance levels users demand. This is causing many to look at NoSQL databases for the flexibility they offer, and is a big reason why the global NoSQL market is forecasted to nearly double and reach USD3.4 billion in 2020.
