a) Flexible data model
Data can be inserted without a defined schema, and the format of the data being inserted can change at any time—providing extreme flexibility in the application, which ultimately delivers substantial business agility.

b) Easy scalability
Some NoSQL databases automatically spreads data across servers, requiring no participation from the applications. Servers can be added and removed from the data layer without application downtime, with data and I/O spread across servers.

c) Consistent, high performance
Advanced NoSQL database technologies transparently cache data in system memory—a behavior that is completely transparent to the developer and the operations team.
