Database Management

Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) continue to do the heavy lifting in data management, while newer database management systems are taking on prominent roles as well. NoSQL database systems such as Key-Value, Column Family, Graph, and Document databases, are gaining acceptance due to their ability to handle unstructured and semi-structured data.

The increased requirements of modern analytical workloads, querying billions of rows on demand, are a challenge for relational databases because they're optimized for transactional workloads. While transactional workload queries tend to be row-oriented (e.g., return every column in a single row), analytical workload queries tend to be column-oriented (e.g., return the aggregate of a single column in every row). By storing columns of data rather than rows of data, columnar databases optimize for analytical workloads without sacrificing the relational model and SQL.
