Level:  Introductory

This tutorial is presented in two parts but each one can be selected individually depending on your needs. In Part 1 you will learn how to evaluate and choose the best NoSQL and SQL database solutions from those available on the market today.

You will learn why we are in a database revolution. Traditional SQL skills and databases are slowly being replaced. You will understand that new hardware and software constraints require new types of database engines, and you will understand how to match the right SQL or NoSQL database to meet your needs for velocity, volume, consistency, availability, scalability, and global clusters.

You will also gain an understanding of – and be able to debunk – the myths around NoSQL, such as we must trade consistency for global availability, ACID consistency is no longer needed, and NoSQL’s primary use case is velocity, volume, and variety.
