Why NoSQL - Three Trends Disrupting the Database Status Quo

There are three motivating challenges that have led to the emergence and rapid adoption of NoSQL database technology:

  1. A growing numbers of users that applications must support (along with growing user expectations for how applications perform)
  2. A growth in the volume and variety of data that developers must work with
  3. The rise of cloud computing, which relies on a distributed three-tier Internet architecture

In a nutshell, the transition has been spurred by the need for flexibility – both in the scaling model and the data model. This white paper explores how these three trends are driving the NoSQL paradigm shift.
