Abstract

NoSQL databases, also called non-relational databases, are more horizontally scalable, usually open source, and better suited for distributed systems. NoSQL databases deal routinely with larger data sizes than traditional ones. The key distinction in implementation comes from the fact that relationships between database entities are not stored in the database itself (no more join queries); they are moved to the application or object-relational mapping (ORM) levels—in our case, to Node.js code. Another good reason to use NoSQL databases is that, because they are schemaless, they are perfect for prototyping and Agile iterations (more pushes!).
