The creation and continued development of web applications require numerous data sets. How exactly these data sets are stored in databases is crucial for the user. The CouchDB database management system stores data in a way that is schema-free and document-oriented. Non-structured or half-structured data can be virtually filtered and structured without any issues.
Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera, or good old Internet Explorer? The debate about which web browser is number one has been going on for years among the internet community. But what is a browser exactly? And is there one in particular that can trump the competition and truly be the best browser?
A website operator is responsible for the security of a web project as well as the content. Neglecting security may lead to hackers easily infiltrating the system through security gaps. If a malware-infected website goes unnoticed, it could cause serious damage. It is therefore important to make sure your site is fully protected.
Data transmission via SSL/TLS is one of the most effective means to give a web project more security. Even before packets are sent, powerful algorithms ensure the encryption of the information. If third parties capture the data on the transmission path, the true content remains hidden from them. However, it becomes problematic if attackers are active with their tools before the encryption process...
NoSQL is a growing trend in the world of data storage. This should come as no surprise: NoSQL databases are considered more flexible, more powerful and more functional than traditional database models. For example, they are now the preferred database model for big data applications. But what is NoSQL and what are the advantages or relational SQL databases?
So, you need a database for your project, but you don’t want to use traditional relational databases with MySQL or MariaDB. Redis could be the solution. This database management system offers an in-memory database with a key-value store providing fast access speeds and simple scalability. Can this open source system also support your project?
Databases are usually based on rows of data. Columnar databases turn this system on its side. Instead of saving each entry one after the other, in a columnar database entries are stored category by category. This results in a decisive speed advantage when working with massive quantities of data. But how exactly does a column-oriented DBMS work?
Almost every application utilises databases in one form or another. Besides classic relational databases, document-oriented databases have also become well-established in the course of the development of web apps. Instead of working with complex tables, these document stores use semi-structured data in simple documents. But how exactly does this work?
A working database system is pivotal to maintaining any computer-based system. The central body that regulates the respective data pools here is always a Database Management System (DBMS). The software structures and organises the data available in the database, and also manages writing and reading permissions for the database system.
MySQL is the most used database management system in the world. This open source software has been available for productive use since 1995 and is generally considered a standard solution for users of relational databases. This could change in the near future. MariaDB, a community-developed fork of MySQL is catching up on its predecessor and is consequently becoming an increasingly attractive...
