Whitepaper: Brief History of NoSQL…
… and Why It Might Not Be Your Best Choice
The NoSQL “movement” was a response to the status quo of the data management world in the early 2000s. Web 2.0 companies were struggling to handle the hundreds of thousands to millions of visitors to their websites. Many of these companies were looking for ways to make money and saw data as a key to being able to do that. They wanted to collect as much data as possible about their visitors with the hope of monetizing that data, but they weren’t trying to track money or stock trades, do precise billing for mobile phone calls, or enable real-time A/B testing for on-line games or digital ads. That might not be your problem.
Today’s modern, data-driven applications need to work at high speed and to scale to high volumes of data without compromising on correct data, sacrificing familiar SQL interactivity, or providing consistent operations like transactions at scale. To meet these challenges, consider another approach: NewSQL.
