Document as well as Key-value/Tabular NoSQL databases are extremely popular. Both data models can store JSON objects and both are fast and simple. In theory, either one could be used to model your data. The question is, when is one data model better than the other? This 5-minute lightning talk will discuss the tradeoffs in choosing between a document oriented NoSQL database like MongoDB or CouchDB versus choosing a more defined schema NoSQL database like HBase, Cassandra, or Oracle NoSQL Database.
