10 top NoSQL database recently asked interview questions

1) Who are involved in developing NoSQL ?

Amazon and Google Papers

2) What is NoSQL?

Which we will use on non-relationla databases. Like columnar databases. By using NOSQL we can query data from non-relational databases.

3) What are unique features of NoSQL databases?

-There is no concept of relationship between records
-They need UN-structural data
-They do not store data that individual records do not have relationship with each other.

4) How NoSQL databases are faster than traditional RDBMS?

-Stores database on multiple servers,rather storing whole database in a single server
-Adding replicas on other servers, we can retrieve data faster, even one of the server crashes

5) What are the UNIQUE features of NoSQL?

-Opensource
-ACID complaint

6) What are the characteristics of good NoSQL product?

  • High availability: Fault tolerance when a single server goes down
  • Disaster recovery: For when a data center goes down, or more likely someone digs up a network cable just outside the data center
  • Support: Someone to stand behind a product when it goes wrong (or it's used incorrectly!)
  • Services: Product experts who can advise on best practices and help determine how to use a product to address new or unusual business needs
  • Ecosystem: Availability of partners, experienced developers, and product information — to avoid being locked into a single vendor's expensive support and services contract

7) Reasons to go for NoSQL databases?

An RDBMS can not fit for all of the enterprise requirements.
-Big data
-Schema Redesign overhead
-Unstructured data explosion
-It avoids Sparse data problem (RDBMS will use space for NULL values. But, NOSQL will ignore NULL values)
-Dynamically changing relationships between attributes

8) Benefits of NoSQL?

-Faster solutions for new generation problems
-Lower cost
-Modern computer systems don't exist in a vacuum; they're always communicating with someone or something. NoSQL databases are commonly paired with particular complementary computer software, from search engines to semantic web technologies and Hadoop. Leveraging these technologies can make deployment of NoSQL more productive and useful.

9) How many core types of NOSQL databases?

Columnar: Extension to traditional table structures. Supports variable sets of columns (column families) and is optimized for column-wide operations (such as count, sum, and mean average).


Key-value: A very simple structure. Sets of named keys and their value(s), typically an uninterpreted chunk of data. Sometimes that simple value may in fact be a JSON or binary document.


Triple: A single fact represented by three elements:

The subject you're describing
The name of its property or relationship to another subject
The value — either an intrinsic value (such as an integer) or the unique ID of another subject (if it's a relationship) For example, Adam likes Cheese. Adam is the subject, likes is the predicate, and Cheese is the object.

Document: XML, JSON, text, or binary blob. Any treelike structure can be represented as an XML or JSON document, including things such as an order that includes a delivery address, billing details, and a list of products and quantities.


10) What are the most modern databases?

In-memory and flash databases: Some great advances have been made in real-time online transaction processing (OLTP) and analytics using in-memory databases. In-memory databases are very specialized and are targeted to particular problem domains. NoSQL databases that take advantage of flash or memory caching to aid real-time analytics.


Complex proprietary stacks: NoSQL software such as Oracle NoSQL, MarkLogic, Microsoft's Document DB, and IBM Cloudant, though.

NewSQL: This is a new database access paradigm. It applies the software design lessons of NoSQL to RDBMS, creating a new breed of products, which is a great idea, but fundamentally these products still use traditional relational math and structures, which is why they aren't included.

11 Top Blockchain Key Advantages to Read Now

Blockchain architecture changes the financial world in near future. Increasing population and volume of transactions cause financial crimes. Opportunities to implement Blockchain technology are Banks, Share markets, Government Bodies, and Big Corporations.  
Less maintenance and distributable made blockchain hot in the market. Why You Need BlockchainBlockchain stores each transaction in Blocks. No one can tamper or change the details. The people who are making a transaction in Blockchain world they both have same copies. No possibility of changing these records by parties involved. So it is robust.Key Advantages of BlockchainThe ledger details distributed.Distributed data available to all parties, and no one can tamper this data. Every transaction is Public. That means only people who have access can see the information. Stores all records permanently.No one can edit or manipulate the dataThe possibility is there to hack a centralized database. In Blockchain one cannot hack the data. S…

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrism Blue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ens…

Testing in DevOps to maximize Quality

Testing is the critical phase in DevOps. The process of DevOps is to speed up the deployment process. That means there are no shortcuts in testing. Covering most relevant test cases is the main thing the tester has to focus.
Requirements to Maximize QualityGood maintainable codeExhaustive coverage of casesTraining documents to Operations teamFewer bugs in the bug trackerLess complex and no redundant code Testing Activities in DevOpsThe team to use Tools to check the quality of codeStyle checker helps to correct code styleGood design avoids bugs in productionCode performance depends on the code-qualityBugs in production say poor testing  Tester Roles in DevOpsGood quality means zero bugs in production.Design requirements a base to validate testing results.Automated test scripts give quick feedback on the quality of code. Right test cases cover all the functional changes. The Bottom LineThe DevOps approach is seamless integration between Development and Operations without compromi…

Top Differences Read Today Agile vs Waterfall model

The Agile and Waterfall both models are popular in Software development. The Agile model is so flexible compared to waterfall model. Top differences on Waterfall vs Agile give you clear understanding on both the processes. Waterfall ModelThe traditional model is waterfall. It has less flexibility.Expensive and time consuming model.Less scalable to meet the demand of customer requirements.The approach is top down. Starting from requirements one has to finish all the stages, till deployment to complete one cycle.A small change in requirement, one has to follow all the stages till deployment.Waterfall model creates idleness in resource management. Agile ModelAgile model is excellent for rapid deployment of small changesThe small split-requirements you can call them as sprintsLess idleness in resource management.Scope for complete team involvement.Faster delivery makes client happy.You can deploy changes related to compliance or regulatory quickly.Collaboration improves among the team.
