Semi Structured Data

Posted: January 23, 2013 in Live in a Cloudy World, Windows Azure

Following the structure VS unstructured data, introducing now what is called semi structured data. The semi structured data is like the structured data in few things, from entities, queries and some operations. However it doesn’t allow the relation between its tables like the structured do. Certainly like the structure data has its own primary key and foreign key, the unstructured data has its own identifiers.

When and why to use the unstructured data? Well the unstructured data gives you more flexibility to work with more scalability than the structured data. For more information about the Microsoft Windows Azure for semi structured data check the table storage and for Amazon please check the amazon S3.
