DZone Refcard brought to you in partnership with Couchbase – Moving Out of a Relational Database
Need help with your NoSQL migration? Look no further than our “NoSQL Migration Essentials” Refcard. We walk through the primary steps for moving out of a relational database, plus important design principles to understand and consider in your migration process.
Readers will review key concepts that range from denormalizing and modeling data to defining access patterns, designing primary keys and indexes, and creating an entity relationship diagram — all demonstrated with a simple site application example. As a bonus, readers can use the included JSON structure at the end to interact with a NoSQL playground.
