Measuring CPU stall reductions from Dynimize

Duration: 30 min

Level: Intermediate

On the other side of the horizon, we have the NoSQL databases, also called schema-less databases that encourage flexibility. In schema-less databases, there is no imposed structural restriction, only data to be saved.

Though every tool has it's use case, sometimes things call for a hybrid approach.
