To overcome this disadvantage of RDBMS Nosql has been put into use because of its certain advantages: increased flexibility, scalability and customization. There are 3 types of Nosql databases: Key value stores: It has a hash table which consists of a primary key and a pointer to the particular data in the database. Amazon Dynamo is one of the most common key values for Nosql database. Column oriented databases: In this data is stored in column instead of rows.Examples of this databases are Google’s Big table. HBase and Cassandra are derived from big table. Document databases: It is more complex than key value stores. Document databases includes simpleDB, mongoDB and couchDB. Other Nosql and hybrid databases: Apart from the traditional databases and the Nosql databases various hybrid data stores have been introduced such as DEX, PNUTS and
