Microsoft of late released a whitepaper NoSQL together with the Windows Azure. The whitepaper provides an introduction to NoSQL database technology, together with its major subcategories.
Examination of NoSQL technologies available inward the cloud using Windows Azure together with SQL Azure; together with a critical give-and-take of the NoSQL together with relational database approaches, including the suitability of each to line-of-business application development, convey too been discussed.
It is an interesting whitepaper equally it tries to speak most the “NoSQL” i.e. NO RELATIONAL DATABASES.
Relational databases convey ever been criticized equally they are less scalable. Non-relational data stores collectively categorized equally “NoSQL” convey garnered the attention. These databases are oft employed inward public, massively scaled Web site scenarios, where traditional database features thing less, together with fast fetching of relatively unproblematic information sets matters most. Many of these databases utilise parallelized inquiry mechanisms, horizontal partitioning together with permit storage of heterogeneous, loosely-schematized information records.
There are 4 sub-categories of NoSQL :
- Key-Value Stores
- Document Stores
- Wide Column Stores
- Graph Databases
Each of the higher upward mentioned sub-category has been clearly defined inward this whitepaper. Besides this it too talks most Windows Azure cloud stack. Glimpse of it is shown inward the figure:
