Type:  White Paper
Length:  6 pages

2015 will be a milestone year as applications architects broaden their use of NoSQL to meet the many challenges that the growth of unstructured data is presenting to traditional relational databases.

While relational databases are still a part of the technology stack for many companies, others are innovating and incorporating NoSQL solutions into their technology stack. As a result they have simplified their deployments, enhanced their availability and reduced their costs.

Read this whitepaper and learn about:

  • Why companies choose Riak's NoSQL solution over a relational database

  • How to analyze the decision points you should consider when choosing between relational and NoSQL databases

  • Simple patters for building common applications in Riak using its key/value design
