A NoSQL database provides a mechanism for storage and retrieval of data which is modeled in means other than the tabular relations used in relational databases. Motivations for this approach include: simplicity of design, simpler "horizontal" scaling to clusters of machines and finer control over availability. The data structures used by NoSQL databases (e.g. key-value, wide column, graph, or document) are specified from those used by default in relational databases, making some operations faster in NoSQL. Sometimes the data structures used by NoSQL databases are also viewed as "more flexible" than relational database tables.
