image and movie business, Mya is one of the products of choice.

NoSQL is just a group of solutions to manage types of data that SQL is not
ideal for.

You might just as well say:
With images exceeding several megabytes in size, NoAccess is much better
than Access for 
manipulating graphic data.    Take for instance the NoAcess super
application called
