    66 * '''Relational databases have difficulties scaling'''. Imagine storing all of the Google index in a relational database; it's simply impossible. Unfortunately, more and more of today's innovative applications require massive data to be processed. This is the need for the emergence of many of the new NoSQL approaches that are emerging, such as [wiki:GraphDatabase Graph Databases]. 
    77 * '''Tables are not web native at all'''. The web is a collection of pages that are hyperlinked, not identically-shaped rows in a gigantic table. A graph, as known from math, or as informally drawn by most engineers on whiteboards, is a much more natural representation for data that is native to the web. 
    8  * '''Much of the data processed by today's innovative applications lives elsewhere'''. The time of stovepipe applications is over. Some applications don't own any substantial percentage of their own data any more, such as some social feed aggregators. An Internet [wiki:GraphDatabase Graph Database] like InfoGrid with its Probe Framework can make it easy for developers to treat the entire web as their (graph) database with a uniform programming model.
