Document Databases

  • Guy Harrison


A document database is a nonrelational database that stores data as structured documents, usually in XML or JSON formats. The “document database” definition doesn’t imply anything specific beyond the document storage model: document databases are free to implement ACID transactions or other characteristics of a traditional RDBMS, though the dominant document databases provide relatively modest transactional support.
