Training – Sep 22 – Introduction to NoSQL databases



Relational databases have long proven their use, but have also shown their limitations; they enforce the use of a schema and they do not scale well  over multiple machines.

NoSQL databases no longer follow the relational data model but instead allow you to use data in a structure which is more in line with the use case. In addition to being designed with scalability in mind.

There are 4 distinct types of NoSQL databases:

  • Key/Value
  • Column Store
  • Document Store
  • Graph Databases

This training will provide a theoretical introduction enforced with some practical exercises on the most popular NoSQL databases.

  • Redis (key/value)
  • Cassandra (column store)
  • MongoDB (document store)
  • Neo4J (graph database)
