noSQL is what you need 99% of the cases

Let me put a disclaimer before I carry on. There might be situations where noSQL’s solution are absolutely illogical to use. But I firmly believe that if you are using a database for storing Ruby’s or PHP’s object into a database to eventually retrieve them later, you fit in my 99% case scenario.

Even if this is a blog about NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence, I cannot fully agree with that. Following the logic above one would use object databases in 99% of the cases. And reality shows things are different.

What I could agree with is that document databases provide a good balance between:

  • a flexible and close to the object-oriented world model
  • a decent querying model
  • better separation between data and behavior

But that’s far from saying document databases fit 99% of the scenarios.
