Web Scalability with NoSQL

Supporting large user base is important, but it’s just as important to handle rapidly growing (or shrinking) numbers of concurrent users:

  • A newly launched app can go viral, growing from zero to a million users overnight – literally.
  • Seasonal swings like those around Black Friday, the holiday season or Valentine’s Day can create massive spikes for short periods.

With relational technologies, many application developers find it difficult, or even impossible, to get the dynamic scalability and level of scale they need while also maintaining the performance users demand. Many are turning to NoSQL for help - this white paper explores why.
