Fundamentals of Document Databases

A document database (sometimes referred to as a “document store” or a “document-oriented database”), is a NoSQL or non-relational database. But, document databases use an index to associate “keys” with “documents,” making it more efficient at retrieving data. Unlike relational databases, document databases are not structured with a format of rows and columns, but scale horizontally. A major strength of document databases is their streamlining ability, allowing developers to work…
