In today’s world, many have heard of SQL and NoSQL. However, there is still confusion about when to use each. Let’s begin by defining SQL and NoSQL. Relational database is another name for SQL databases. Non-relational or distributed database is another name for NoSQL databases. Although SQL databases are more common, more businesses are continuing to adopt NoSQL databases. To clarify SQL and NoSQL further, we will discuss the main differences between SQL databases and NoSQL databases. We will also provide some examples of each.
Now you know a little bit more about SQL databases and NoSQL databases and when to use each database. Thus, you can make a more informed decision on choosing or developing a database. Don’t worry, you won’t have to choose or develop a database alone. Here at Aciron, we have experience in helping clients design simple and complex custom databases solutions.
