Power of Big Data: capabilities and perspectives

As everyone knows, technological development is evolving flash like. At the same time software requirements, approaches and algorithms are growing with equal speed.  In particular, relatively recently, developers have faced the problem of huge data volume processing – making it necessary to create a new, effective approach, a new paradigm of data storage. The solution was not long in coming – in 2011 huge companies all over the world started using the Big Data concept. In this article we will talk about this engaging approach.

In this post, we’d like to share some of the most interesting terms that are used in today’s science and IT world. We think you will benefit from getting familiar with these modern tech-age expressions.

Where is NoSQL practically used?

For over four decades now, Relational Database Management Systems (RDMS) have dominated the enterprise market. However, the trend seems to change with the introduction of NoSQL databases. In this article, we are going to highlight practical examples where NoSQL systems have been deployed. We will also go further and point out other applications where implementation of such systems might be necessary.

What is Cassandra Database?

What is MongoDB?

MongoDB LogoMongoDB, an open-source document database written in C++, is classified as a NoSQL database. Because it avoids the traditional table-based relational database structure in favor of JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas (MongoDB calls the format BSON), it facilitates quick-and-easy data integration in various applications.
