Non Structured Query Language

n.

Pronunciation

/nɑn ˈstrʌkʧərd ˈkwiri ˈlæŋgwəʤ/

Acronym

NoSQL

Definition

A database that stores and retrieves data without using relational databases.

NoSQL databases are seen as more flexible and faster than SQL and are used to deal with big data. However, without the standardization and research behind SQL, NoSQL data bases have differing interfaces, lower level query languages, and issues with consistency and data loss.
