As a DBA, perhaps you’ve seen database engines such as object-oriented and OLAP databases come and go, and you’re wondering why NoSQL should be any different. You may ask questions like: What kinds of administration and management work does NoSQL entail? How are security, backup and recovery, database monitoring and tuning handled? How do I create databases, objects, and read/write data without SQL? Learn what NoSQL is, why its needed, and when it’s not.
Millions of people, objects and ‘things’ connecting with each other is changing the way organizations and consumers interact with each other and the environment around them. Data comes from different geographical locations and across multiple channels. Managing this explosion of high velocity dynamic data is a challenge with legacy systems.
