Chapter 4. Modeling Your Data

This is an age of information and one of the major problems that you will face is managing information so that you can make sense out of it. And to make sense out of it, you have to first manage and organize your information. This organization of information is a "two-ended" problem. One end is about the kind of data that you have, and the other end is the storage medium or the solution in which you have to actually store the information. This process of information management and organization, keeping in mind both the ends, is called data modeling. This exactly is the process that we focus in this chapter.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • The basics of datastore's modeling language.

  • The internal storage of data.

  • Modeling your data around the datastore internals.

  • Reviewing the available types of data storage in datastore.

So, these are our goals in this chapter. Let's get started with data modeling.
