NoSQL Database(s)

I am knew to this tech. I understand NoSQL is not relational. Could old COBOL file structures or such systems be considered as NoSQL type since we could put different record structures with variable lengths (dependent on array values) and we could design a UI as a record (incorporating arrays as well)? We had to map the character rows and columns for the screen, back then.

    If you interpret NoSQL literally as a database that doesn't use SQL (and it is not relational), the answer might be yes, but one key difference to what we currently know as NoSQL databases, is that when you used those files in your applications, you didn't have a management system for the database; your application needed to work directly with the files and include all the logic to manage them.  Current NoSQL databases are actually database management systems that our applications can use to not have to deal with the files directly, and they include features specifically designed to make them very fast and scalable (among other things).
