The relational database model was designed to solve the problems of yesterday’s data storage requirements. The massively connected world of today presents different problems and new challenges. We’ll explore the NoSQL philosophy, before comparing and contrasting the strengths and weaknesses of the relational model versus the NoSQL model. While stepping through real-world scenarios, we’ll discuss the reasons for choosing one solution over the other.
To complete this session, let’s demonstrate our findings with an application written with a NoSQL storage layer and explain the advantages that accrue from that decision. By taking a look at the new challenges we face with our data storage needs, we’ll examine why the principles behind NoSQL make it a better candidate as a solution, than yesterday’s relational model.
