NoSQL, which stands for Not Only SQL, is a common term for nonrelational databases. Among popular NoSQL databases you will find the aforementioned MongoDB and CouchDB, along with Redis, Cassandra and more. NoSQL databases have become increasingly popular thanks to their benefits in particular use cases, especially in big data and real-time Web usages where performance, scalability and flexibility are key.
