To store this data we have the option to use your SQL or NoSql add on services. Being new to NoSql we are wondering whether your NoSql is a viable option for the feature we are proposing to offer for our app?

What are the benefits for us using your NoSql over SQL?

What document types does you NoSql services support? Which document type would be suitable to use?

Finally from the extensive collection of services you have on offer which would recommend for this type of functionality?

  • App42 Cloud API
  • AppWarp - AppWarp.
  • AppWarp S2
  • App42 PaaS
  • BPaaS & GPaaS -  AppWarp S2

Please note this is an early bird enquiry as I'm just trying to flesh out some information at the moment.

Many Thanks

There are many benefits in NoSql over SQL. SQL database needs to know what you are storing in advance, however NoSQL databases are built to allow the insertion of data without a predefined schema. That makes it easy to make significant application changes in real-time, which means development is faster, code integration is more reliable. NoSQL Documents can contain many different key-value pairs, or key-array pairs, or even nested documents, every single item in the database is stored as an attribute name (or "key"), together with its value.

App42 Cloud accepts/sends data in jSON format.

For storing data on cloud you should use App42 Cloud API. If your app need real-time data transfer then you can use AppWarp or AppWarpS2.

Let me know if you have any other queries.
