With unstructured database technologies like Cassandra, MongoDB and even JSON storage in Postgres, unstructured data has become remarkably easy to store and to process. Software and data engineers alike can succeed in a world (mostly) free from data modelling, which is no longer a prerequisite to collecting data or extracting value from it.
NoSQL databases have been around for several years now and have become a choice of data storage for managing semi-structured and unstructured data. These databases offer lot of advantages in terms of linear scalability and better performance for both data writes and reads. InfoQ spoke with four panelists to get different perspectives on the current state of NoSQL databases.
