Embedded Data Models - Denormalized

Embedded data models are an example of a denormalized data model. That is, they create relationships by nesting documents within other documents, rather than using references to model relationships.

In the following example, a relationship between two documents is established by embedding the engine document within its parent document.

{ car_id: 48273 model_name: "Corvette", engine: { engine_power: 490, engine_type: "V8", acceleration: "High" } }
