6 Reasons Why We Need NoSQL

  1. We’are dealing with much more data.
  2. We require sub-second responses to queries
  3. We want applications to be up 24/7
  4. We’re seeing many applications in which the database has to soak up data as fast (or even much faster) than it processes queries
  5. We’re frequently dealing with changing data or with unstructured data
  6. We’re willing to sacrifice our sacred cows.

Not bad. But it reads more like the definition of Big Data.
