Yes, more than storing JSON. Database functionality lets you retreive documents that have certain fields or values. You can query the document structure and you can typically retrieve and/or update portions of documents (depending on which DB with JSON capabilities you're talking about).

I think of JSON as being just a text format for passing data between applications. I take it this is something more than just storing JSON as text -- the database parses it and stores it as an object oriented data structure?

re: NewSQL Vendor MemSQL Takes On MongoDB
The list of product that can handle JSON is long. The question that isn't really understood by users and clearly explained by vendors is just how easy (or not) it is to deal with that data. Rivals throw claims that the other guys have to transform the data or otherwise jump through hoops. There are also differences in loading and flexibility, with NoSQL products presumably having the edge in flexibility and ease of use. More to be learned on this front for sure.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
