NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Polyglot persistence is the technique of storing data in various data stores based on efficiency and how that data is going to be used. Do not just use the default database, often an RDBMS, for all the needs of the application. Instead, ask questions like: Does session management data belong in the database or does it belong in a key-value store? Do relationships between customers and products belong in a graph database? Using NoSQL databases like MongoDB, Riak and Neo4J allows us to reconsider how data is treated, even with-in a single application.
