It can be difficult to scale out relational databases and provide more schema flexibility, thus the rise of NoSQL. However, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice data integrity and transactions in order to scale out on commodity hardware and support semi-structured data. By using an RDBMS with built-in sharding and JSON support, you don’t have to. You get the scalability and flexibility of a NoSQL database along with the consistency and reliability of a relational database – and the ability to mix and match relational and JSON data.
In this webinar, we’ll explain how MariaDB Platform can be deployed as a NoSQL database by using the Spider storage engine and built-in SQL functions for JSON. In addition, we’ll discuss how you can access relational data as JSON documents, and how to enforce data integrity if a relational data model is extended with JSON.
