Brave New World of NoSQL :-)

Faust, if you care about data consistency to the extent it appears from
this thread, you should model your data so that consistency is easy, and
doesn't require ninjaing together some sort of way to unleash an armada
of hackery-hoo against inconsistency, which thrives on redundancy and is
a dreadful enemy if given rope, as in NoSQL land.

I'm new here. Are there scenarios where writing happens to an SQL
server, from where NoSQL replicas are fed and used to serve readers?
