Word of the Week

Word #34 - NoSQL

A NoSQL database is distinguished mainly by what it is not -

it is not a structured relational database format that links multiple separate tables.  NoSQL stands for "not only SQL," meaning that SQL, or structured query language is not needed to extract and organize information.   NoSQL databases tend to be more diverse and flatter than relational databases (in a flat database, all data is contained in the same, large table).
