Course objectives
The course covers: 1) the principles behind the NoSQL databases, such as chapters from modern distributed database theory, P2P indexing or the MapReduce programming model; 2) architectures and common features of the main types of NoSQL databases (key-value stores, document databases, column-family stores, graph databases); 3) detailed description of selected NoSQL database systems including practical experience; 4) other topics related to Big Data and non-relational databases (data analytics, DB in web browser, influence of NoSQL to relational databases, etc.)
