NoSQL and Big Data for the Oracle Professional
Iggy Fernandez, NoCOUG
In this paper, I will dissect and demystify NoSQL technology. The relational camp derides NoSQL technology because NoSQL technology does not play by the rules of the relational camp. Therefore, the relational camp is ignoring the opportunity to incorporate the innovations of the NoSQL camp into mainstream database management systems. For its part, the NoSQL camp derides the relational model as unable to satisfy the performance, scalability, and availability needs of today. I claim that the NoSQL camp derides the relational model because it does not sufficiently understand it. I will go so far as to claim that the NoSQL camp does not fully understand its own innovations; it believes they are incompatible with the relational model and it therefore does not see the opportunity to strengthen the relational model, a very strong assertion that I will defend as I go along.
