Relational database is widely used in most of the application to store and retrieve data. They work best when they handle a limited set of data. Handling real time huge volume of data like internet was inefficient in relation database systems. To overcome this problem the "NO-SQL" or "Not Only SQL" Database came into existence. This paper discusses about problems with relation databases and how different types of NOSQL Databases are used to efficiently handle the real world problems.
