NOSQL for the Enterprise
Business are struggling to cope with the explosion of data known as “Big Data”, growing at an estimated 40% per year. These businesses now turn to NOSQL, as traditional relational databases are proving to be unsuccessful at navigating today’s connected data within enterprise applications.
There are four emerging categories of NOSQL databases available today: key-value stores, column family databases, document databases and graph databases. Each category is designed for today’s huge volumes of data, and can store, retrieve and manage that data more easily than possible with a traditional relational database.
Requirements for an enterprise using NOSQL include:
- High-performance queries on complex, connected data
- Easy and uncompromising representation of application entities
- Demonstrated mature support for end-to-end transactions
- Enterprise-grade durability
- Native support for Java, the most widely used platform in today’s enterprises
This paper reviews the use of NOSQL within the enterprise, evaluating the features of each category. The considered use cases address common business goals, looking for the best technology fit and highlighting the value offered by an enterpise-ready NOSQL solution.
