The database world is changing fast, with new advances that are completely transforming the way organizations use massive amounts of. Today, we’re announcing the availability of Oracle NoSQL Database, the latest addition to the Oracle Database portfolio.
Developers can now focus on application development without dealing with the hassle of managing:
They can quickly provision throughput as application workload demands change dynamically and create modern applications without the complexities of maintaining a server or storage.

What does this mean?
It’s a new era for developers.
Picture this. With NoSQL Database, developers can now easily develop and deploy applications that respond to inquiries incredibly fast, such as:
NoSQL Database can do this because it is:
NoSQL Database scales to meet dynamic application workload throughput and storage requirements. Users create tables to store their application data and perform CRUD operations.
A NoSQL Database table is similar to a relational table with additional properties like provisioned write units, read units, and storage capacity. Users provision the throughput and storage capacity in each table based on the anticipated workloads. NoSQL Database resources are allocated and scaled accordingly to meet the workload requirements.
Read Units come in two flavors, Absolute Consistency and Eventual Consistency. Use Absolute Consistency when you need the most recently updated data and Eventual Consistency when you can use slightly older data. Users are billed hourly based on the throughput capacity and storage that is provisioned.
Oracle has made the development environment simple to use to develop applications for NoSQL Database. The application resides as a client which connects to the cloud service. NoSQL Database uses the https protocol to connect these two independently running processes.
