Summary

Making Sense of NoSQL clearly and concisely explains the concepts, features, benefits, potential, and limitations of NoSQL technologies. Using examples and use cases, illustrations, and plain, jargon-free writing, this guide shows how you can effectively assemble a NoSQL solution to replace or augment the traditional RDBMS you have now.

About this Book

If you want to understand and perhaps start using the new data storage and analysis technologies that go beyond the SQL database model, this book is for you. Written in plain language suitable for technical managers and developers, and using many examples, use cases, and illustrations, this book explains the concepts, features, benefits, potential, and limitations of NoSQL.

Making Sense of NoSQL starts by comparing familiar database concepts to the new NoSQL patterns that augment or replace them. Then, you'll explore case studies on big data, search, reliability, and business agility that apply these new patterns to today's business problems. You'll see how NoSQL systems can leverage the resources of modern cloud computing and multiple-CPU data centers. The final chapters show you how to choose the right NoSQL technologies for your own needs.

Managers and developers will welcome this lucid overview of the potential and capabilities of NoSQL technologies.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

The term "NoSQL" defines a wide range of database technologies that offer alternatives to the traditional RDBMS (Relational Database Management System). NoSQL tools like MongoDB, Neo4j, HBase, and Redis take innovative approaches to the unique problems of handling data in modern distributed and web-based systems. With the promise of lowering cost, increasing performance, and improving the ability to scale, there are plenty of good reasons to explore this new generation of agile data solutions.a,/pa.

Using examples and use cases, illustrations, and plain, jargon-free writing, this guide shows how you can effectively assemble a NoSQL solution to replace or augment the traditional RDBMS you have now.
