NoSQL Databases: 6 Business and Technical Reasons for a New Set of Requirements

Here are some technical reasons why traditional relational database vendors are getting challenged:

  1. Scale: The biggest driver of the new generation of data management systems was unprecedented scale.
  2. Disk Capacities have exploded and Random Disk Accesses have gotten cheaper
  3. Fixed Schema is too rigid
  4. First Normal Form is too restrictive/rich
  5. Columnar Stores: It may sometimes be desirable to store together related columns which are accessed together.
  6. Programmatic Access is also important

Great post with a somehow bogus conclusion though.
