NoSQL

Martin Fowler & Pramod Sadalage
Some common characteristics of NoSQL databases
1. they don’t use the relational data model, and thus don’t use the SQL language
2. they tend to be designed to run on a cluster
3. they tend to be Open Source
4. they don’t have a fixed schema, allowing you to store any data in any record
