E-mails, business documents, social media content, production data, and the list goes on... Companies generate a vast amount of data on a daily basis. Traditional relational database systems are increasingly unable to cope with this flood of information, which is why the focus is shifting to NoSQL databases. As they are easily horizontally scalable, these new systems can process much greater amounts of data (e.g. Big Data) and still don’t reach their performance limit. ConSol will show you where it makes sense to employ NoSQL solutions.
The term ‘NoSQL’ is referring to a group of non-relational data management systems. The name is an abbreviation for ‘not only SQL,’ so NoSQL is not trying to replace traditional SQL solutions but rather aims at complementing them.
When it comes to selecting a suitable NoSQL solution, the supported data model of the company is a key criterion. Candidates include key-value databases such as Apache Hadoop or Amazon Dynamo, column-oriented databases including Google BigTable or Apache Cassandra, as well as complex document-based databases like CouchDB or MongoDB. The ConSol NoSQL experts are familiar with all these versions and will, incooperation with you, find the solution that best fits your needs.
