Digital transformation is the number one agenda on almost every IT executive’s task list. Organizations integrating distributed computing into their operations face the challenge of adopting a database that is up to the new challenges presented by a new architecture.
The development of open source NoSQL database options addresses this challenge. NoSQL— generally meant to stand for “Not only SQL”—provides a method to these new data flows reliably and at scale.
Two of the most prominent NoSQL offerings come from MongoDB and Couchbase. MongoDB and Couchbase Server are the two most popular document-oriented databases, designed to handle the semi-structured increasingly found in enterprise cloud computing and Internet of Things deployments. They belong to a new generation of NoSQL databases.
This whitepaper highlights the impact of these offerings as well as the performance, scalability, and availability of each.
