  • submit to reddit

This screencast by Michael Kennedy shows you the stark contrast in simplicity between an application using a relational database and one using a document database such as VoltDB,  MongoDB, CouchDB, or RavenDB. You should have a good idea why you might choose NoSQL over databases such as SQL Server, Oracle, or MySQL after watching this short video.

MySQL and Posgress are free as well.

Scalability? MongoDB replication is broken and data durability is questioned.

Simplicity? May be. Unless you run into luck of transactions...
