SQL Stands for Structured Query Language is a standardized programming language that's used to manage relational databases and perform various operations on the data in them.
SQL is used to communicate with a database.
You can easily create and manipulate the database, access and modify the table rows and columns, etc.
Examples of SQL MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, PostGre, etc.
- High-Speed Query Processing
- Standardized Language
- More than one Data View
NoSQL databases are non-tabular databases and store data differently than relational tables. NoSQL databases come in a variety of types based on their data model. The main types are document, key-value, wide-column, and graph. They provide flexible schemas and scale easily with large amounts of data and high user loads.
Examples of NoSQL are MongoDB, DynamoDB, Cassandra, etc.
- Flexible schemas
- Horizontal scaling
- Fast queries due to the data model
- Ease of use for developers
