The key to riding the wave of Big Data and enabling digital applications in real time is to select the right database that can support massive growth without bursting IT budgets. The high cost of scaling up traditional relational databases, such as Oracle, IBM DB2, and MySQL, has driven many businesses to seek affordable scale-out solutions.
This white paper discusses the pros, cons and best use cases for 2 popular categories of scale-out operational databases:
- NoSQL or “Not only SQL” refers to any database that stores and models in a format other than relational tables
- NewSQL scale-out architectures built with standard SQL that form a class of modern relational database management systems (RDBMSs) that seek to provide the scalability for operational workloads while remaining ACID compliant
Read this white paper to get a better understanding of the scale out database landscape and considerations to identify best solution for your business.
