NoSQL Concepts and Background

Database programmers and developers; people wanting to expand their knowledge on the topic of NoSQL


Expected Duration
119 minutes

NoSQL databases are increasingly used in real-time web applications and big data. They provide a mechanism for retrieval and storage of data other than relational databases. They are attractive to developers due to their horizontal scaling, simplicity of design, and finer control over availability. In this course, you’ll learn about the fundamentals of NoSQL data stores, the importance of queries and updates, and why a NoSQL implementation may be a better choice than a traditional relational database model.
