However, the MongoDB database is not as easy to use for non-programmers who find the JavaScript-based query syntax difficult, and running MongoDB as a distributed database at large scale creates performance and administrative challenges that are not for the faint of heart.
A blockchain is a distributed database containing a list of records, which are time-stamped as well as hardened against tampering and revision.
It covers database systems and data models; design concepts (the relational database model, entity relationship modeling, advanced data modeling, and normalization of database tables); advanced design and implementation; advanced database concepts (transaction management and concurrency control, database performance tuning and query optimization, distributed database management systems, and business intelligence and data warehouses); database connectivity and web technologies; and administration and security.
Starting with the just released version 2.0, the free database ArangoDB has become a distributed database. The sharding option newly implemented in this release allows horizontal distribution of big data within a server cluster, and hence complements the replication features of the previous release.
