Want to step up your app’s performance the simplest, fastest way? Give it a key-value database.
Easy to model and operate, a key-value database fits in where data consists of a list of things that can be looked up with unique identifiers or keys. Accessing data using keys amps up speed and scalability and, in effect, your app’s performance.
- Schema-free design
- Flexible data modeling
- Low latency
- High scalability
- High fault-tolerance
- Clean and simple code
Key-value stores come in different flavors with trade-offs between consistency, availability, and partition-tolerance. They also vary in storage configurations and memory use.
