Why NoSQL Can Be Safer than an RDBMS

Robin Schumacher1:

That said, I disagree with many of the article’s statements, the most important being that companies should not consider NoSQL databases as a first choice for critical data. In this article, I’ll show first how a NoSQL database like Cassandra is indeed being used today as a primary datastore for key data and, second, that Cassandra can actually end up being safer than an RDBMS for important information.

You already know how this goes: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win”. I’ll let you decide where major NoSQL databases are today.
