Another NoSQL to the kitty

Graph database is a great tool for mapping and traversing data with relationships. But doesn’t RDBMS have relationships – one-to-one, many-to-one etc? Why should we go for graphs?
Its simple! Graph databases are best suited for those cases in which a graph comes to our mind instead of a table!
I finished the online course on Neo4J two days back. Its a really simple graph database, and a great starting point to experiment graph databases.

Now the NoSql databases I am familiar with are HBase(tried it about a year back), Redis and Neo4J.

Read and explore stuffs outside your domain. Happy coding 🙂
