Databases
Let’s say you’ve decided to set up a website or an application. You'll obviously need something to manage the data. Yes, that's right, a database. So, what is it going to be? MySQL, MS-SQL, Oracle or PostgreSQL? After all, nothing can be as amazing as a good old RDBMS that employs SQL to manage the data.

Well, allow me to introduce to you an entirely unique and unconventional Database model - NoSQL.

NoSQL has been around well before SQL.

Also there is this talk.

Where he said he remembered a time before SQL.

Most of these databases are key value stores and have their advantages in some circumstances.
