Choosing NoSQL over RDBMS

The main advantage of NoSQL is horizontal scalability and distributed storage. That means you can have a large number of ‘cluster nodes’ and write to them in parallel. The cluster will ensure changes are propagated to the other cluster nodes eventually (eventual consistency).

Application development

The developer requires high coding velocity and great agility in the application building process. NoSQL databases have proven to be a better choice in that regard, using object-focused technologies such as JSON.

Operational Issues

As a database grows in size or the number of users multiplies, many RDBMS-based sites suffer serious performance issues. If organization is facing such issues, then consider using NoSQL technologies.

Data warehousing & analytics

Real time analytics for operational data is better suited to a NoSQL setting. Where data is brought together from many upstream systems to build an application, NoSQL is a must.

Apache Cassandra Architecture

Cassandra’s architecture is based on the understanding that system and hardware failures can and do occur. It’s architecture allows any authorized user to connect to any node in any datacenter and access data using the CQL language. CQL uses a similar syntax to SQL.
