I've heard about this NoSQL?  What is it?  What are the benefits?  The drawbacks?  Pros/Cons?  I've read a couple of news blurbs about it, but I was curious on any input from actual DBA's on what the fuss is all about.

Is there a basic layman's article on the technical side that might be a good read?

Thanks for any information.

Unless you have the need to build a GIGANTIC database, NoSQL is useless to you. It's pretty much only useful for giant international corporations, like Google and Amazon.

But if you want to have a look into it, just to have fun:
