Data Access for Highly-Scalable Solutions: Using SQL, NoSQL, and Polyglot Persistence
This guide describes how to design and build applications and services that can take best advantage of SQL and NoSQL databases by combining them into a polyglot solution. It provides an end to end walkthrough of a business application that uses SQL Server in conjunction with a variety of NoSQL databases, showing how the designers selected the databases to closely match the various business requirements. This guide has an accompanying reference implementation of an online ordering system. The sample code illustrates how to implement a polyglot solution that stores data in a variety of SQL and NoSQL databases, and how to decouple the data access logic from the business logic of the application.
