You’ve probably heard about NoSQL, and you may wonder what it is. NoSQL represents a fundamental change in the way people think about storing and accessing data, especially now that most of the information generated is unstructured or semi-structured data — something for which existing database systems such as Oracle, MySQL, SQLServer, and Postgres aren’t well suited.
