Use cases for NoSQL

NoSQL has been getting a lot of attention in our industry recently. I"m really interested in what peoples thoughts are on the best use-cases for its use over relational database storage. What should trigger a developer into thinking that particular datasets are more suited to a NoSQL solution. I"m particularly interested in MongoDB and CouchDB as they seem to be getting the most coverage with regard to PHP development and that is my focus.

Some great use-cases - for MongoDB anyway - are mentioned on the MongoDB site. The examples given are real-time analytics, Logging and Full Text search. These articles are all well worth a readhttp://www.mongodb.com/use-cases

There's also a great write-up on which NoSQL database is best suited to which type of project:http://kkovacs.eu/cassandra-vs-mongodb-vs-couchdb-vs-redis
