Free NoSQL data sources for testing?

Posted 01 April 2016 - 08:33 AM

Hi all,

I'm about to embark on a group project for school where we are doing several rounds of research regarding NoSQL databases. I was wondering if anybody here had any good suggestions for large collections of NoSQL data that were available for free online? It doesn't really matter what it is, just as long as it's a decent-size collection of NoSQL data. Any suggestions?

1) data themselves are independent from their database, so there is no such thing as NoSQL data. it were different if you wanted a NoSQL database dump (but why should someone publish a dump of random data?).

2) if you want arbitrary data, use a data generation tool (like fzaninotto/Faker for PHP). there is certainly a library in your chosen language.

Thanks, what I meant was data that was in the formats commonly used in NoSQL DBs. I actually found some great JSON documents a little while ago that are the sort I'm looking for. When they do so, people and companies tend to publish dumps of data like these essentially for use by academical or other research purposes, just so they can be used as fodder by people like me. I found a great JSON data generation tool too that I could use in the future if I need more stuff, so thanks for that suggestion!
