Top Five NoSQL Databases and When to Use Them

  • Top Five NoSQL Databases and When to Use Them-

    CouchDB

    CouchDB gets accessed in JSON format over HTTP. This makes it simple to use for Web applications. Perhaps not surprisingly, CouchDB is suited best for the Web with some interesting applications for offline mobile apps. Developers should look to CouchDB when seeking a reliable database – every change is stored on disk as a document revision, so redundancy and conflict resolution are well addressed. By using multi-version concurrency control (MVCC), writes do not block reads. Additionally, CouchDB boasts a strong replication model that allows for Master-Master replication and filtered replication streams. This robust replication model opens up interesting possibilities for scaling the database.

The days of the single source of truth, one database for the entire enterprise, are over. Now even a relatively simple mobile application demands more than one database. The good news is that we have entered a golden age of open-source NoSQL databases. Developers have great and readily available open-source technologies with robust communities behind them at their fingertips.

The difficulty is knowing which database is right for which use case. While a number of options are available, according to Redis Labs, these are five NoSQL databases that developers should be familiar with.

Redis Labs offers enterprise-class Redis and Memcached for developers. Their fully-managed cloud services - Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud - deliver top performance in a highly-available, infinitely scalable, predictable and stable manner — freeing developers from dealing with nodes, clusters, scaling, data-persistence and failure recovery.
