My 2 cents before you jump into the nosql bandwagon.

1) If sql works for you, stick with it. RDBMS's like postgeSQL, MySQL
will not wake you up in the middle of the night with a crash.
2) If you have scaling problems, add some horse power to you hardware,
battery backed RAID, and solid state hard drives are good for you.
(Prices have come down in the last year or two).
3) Disk space is cheap. Avoid joins while using sql as far as
possible. Create additional table to do your indexing and grouping.
4) And if you still think you need nosql, god help you.
