5. Data Stores: SQL and NoSQL Databases
In this chapter, we will study the SQL and NoSQL databases. First, you will learn how to decide on the ideal database to be used based on the format of the data at hand. Then, we will implement storing and querying data in different databases such as MySQL, MongoDB, and Cassandra. Furthermore, to improve efficiency, we will optimize the databases for maximum performance. This chapter includes hands-on experiences so that you can learn how to deal with practical real-world problems related to databases. By the end of this chapter, you will be able to develop and implement data models on MySQL, MongoDB, and Cassandra databases.
