How to choose between SQL and No-SQL Database?
SQL database is a better choice for any business that has the pre-defined structure and set schemas. Applications that involve multi-row transactions - like accounting systems, warehousing, payment systems can be benefitted using SQL database.
NoSQL database is a good choice for businesses that have rapid growth or databases with no clear schema definitions. If you cannot define a schema for your database, or if your schema continues to change for apps such as mobile apps, real-time analytics, content management systems, it is the better choice.
