The Royal Society of Chemistry hosts an increasing number of chemistry related databases and have utilized SQL-based technologies for our development platforms in general. In recent years the interest in noSQL databases has exploded as the associated technologies have developed and have shown great promise in terms of enhanced performance. We have collaborated with GGA Software Services to implement their noSQL technologies and have integrated it into the compound repository presently being developed as part of the underpinning architecture for compound data management at the RSC. This presentation will provide an overview of the reasons why we have integrated a noSQL solution, quantitative analysis of the benefits of inclusion and our thoughts regarding further approaches to optimize search performance for the chemical compound repository.
