Abstract

   One of the barriers that the developer community face once turning to the newly, highly distributable, schema agnostic and non-relational database, called NoSQL, which is how to migrate their legacy relational database (which is already filled with a large amount of data) into this new class of database management systems. This paper presents a new approach for converting the already filled relational database of any database management system to any type of NoSQL databases in the most optimized data structure form without bothering of specifying the schema of tables and relations between them. In addition, a simplified software as a prototype based on this algorithm is built to show the results of the output for testing the validity of the algorithm.
