Support for using NoSQL DB's

We are publishing extremely high amount of daily events and moving the data store into a NoSQL type DB would provide greater efficient and search speeds.

What is your industry? Other
How will this idea be used?

We support multiple NoSQL db's and have the ability to migrate from traditional DB to a NoSQL one.  Have the more advance structuring the DB would greatly improve the performance of control center and potentially allow for active/active solutions

    Thank you for your response. We will be considering supporting NoSQL database along with modernizing the architeture to support high volumes in future.

    Mongo or Cassandra, but our volume puts stress on the Oracle DB which requires constant maintenance.

    What NoSQL databases are you using?

    Would like a noSQL DB as an alternate to using Oracle or DB2. Our event volume is quite high and creates problems when running reports, API calls or UI access. noSQL db's can dynamically grow much faster with minimal impact to performance.
