Paper: NoSQL and the Windows Azure Platform

A paper by Andrew J.Brust. Abstract:

An introduction to NoSQL database technology, and its major subcategories, for those new to the subject; an examination of NoSQL technologies available in the cloud using Windows Azure and SQL Azure; and a critical discussion of the NoSQL and relational database approaches, including the suitability of each to line-of-business application development.

When analyzing NoSQL options available on the Azure platform, Andrew is listing:

  • Azure Table Storage
  • SQL Azure XML Columns
  • SQL Azure Federation — check also The NoSQL gene in SQL Azure Federations
  • OData (?)
  • running NoSQL databases as Azure Worker Roles, VM roles, and Azure Drive

The paper concludes:

We saw how NoSQL databases are suitable for data management that is light-duty but large-scale, and how they work well for content management requirements of many stripes. We also saw, again and again, that relational databases are best for line-of-business applications. The database consistency, query optimization and set-based declarative query capability that relational databases have provided for decades is still required by most LOB applications; this has not changed.
