  • In the previous article, we explored some of the popular SQL clients, and here, let’s discuss NoSQL clients for efficient administration and development.

    Databases are the heart of almost every Internet and enterprise application I can think of. The demands for scale, speed, and fast application development have brought a novel breed of NoSQL databases. Since the SQL and non-SQL databases vary with their definitions, structure, and functions, the tool/client required to work with them also varies.
