Sourav Mukherjee

NoSQL is a free and open-source, scattered, extensive column store database management system intended to handle large amounts of data across many product servers, providing high obtainability and accessibility with no single point of failure. It is the easiest truly big-data database that can scale and replicate data globally in a master-less configuration. A NoSQL database delivers a mechanism for storage and recovery of data that is demonstrated in means other than the tabular relations used in relational databases.

As the given name proposed, it is a substitute for SQL that uses in such a way that the SQL is co-existed. A relational database management system (RDBMS) is a database management system based on the relational model of data and it is a completely structured way of storing data.

This article also reviews the basics of NoSQL and its usages.
