The Web Graph Database



Hate it or love it, the term "NoSQL" is probably here to stay for a while. As Wikipedia says:

NoSQL is an umbrella term for a loosely defined class of non-relational data stores that break with a long history of relational databases and ACID guarantees.

InfoGrid implements one particular type of NoSQL technology, called a GraphDatabase. (See also Wikipedia entry on Graph Databases)

InfoGrid can also use a number of other NoSQL technologies, notably to store information using the Store abstraction. However, InfoGrid does not require the use of non-relational storage; it is just as happy storing information in a relational database using other implementations of the Store abstraction also included in InfoGrid.
