Hi, I'm in my final year of university and I have come across this question a few times in past papers. Its worth 9 marks. Could anyone help me out? The question is below.....

Some databases storage systems make use of non-first-normal-form data structures. Explain what this means using Google's BigTable as an example.
What practical effect has this had on the design of their systems?


Thanks

Hello Chloe and welcome to the Ranch!
A general role here is that we don't 'solve' homeworks.
What you can do is to read more about the material (Google!) and then you ask about what you didn't understand.
Show the Ranchers your efforts!

Thank you and welcome again!
