Software and Technology companies span a broad range. Whether you are a social media, security, service, or infrastructure company, you are storing and retrieving LOTS of data — Big Data.
Software and Technology companies are growing and evolving quickly and need a database that can handle their Big Data challenges. Since most of this data is unstructured and the volume is constantly growing, traditional relational databases aren’t up for this challenge. Tech companies need a database that can scale easily, is globally available, and can handle the massive growth in unstructured data cost effectively.
