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.

Eh, NoSQL and RDBMS's solve different problems and it's not only about scalability.
If your data is relational then an RDBMS is the best choice but for data that isn't relational (and a lot of data isn't) you might want to look at NoSQL. At least it might reduce the chance that you use an RDBMS as a glorified flat-file storage...
