Abstract

NoSQL databases and related technologies are rapidly evolving and are commonly used in a variety of scenarios (consistency, availability, partition tolerance), and this has sparked controversy in the database world in several, so this paper aims to shed light on the characteristics that determine the use of databases. By discussing the challenges and studying the differences in depth and trying to answer the question related to the future use of the database, we started by discussing both relational and non-relational databases, shortcomings, and challenges, then we chose a model of both types, and we studied the differences in practice in the query process by installing database servers, it is an important part of the data handling process. We also discussed the popularity of the two models adopted for several considerations and concluded that non-relational databases, despite the challenges, tend to be the first choice soon.
