For the last 5 months I have been writing the code of NavDB’s database engine, which will initially provide support for key-value databases.

Key-Value Database Model

The first available database model for NavDB will be the key-value model. This model is known for its raw speed, simplicity and for being easy to scale to multiple nodes. Every entry in a key-value entity is accessible by a key, although you can also typically find an entry by searching through values.

The Database.Guide site has a good page on key-value databases and which use cases they are best suited for: http://database.guide/what-is-a-key-value-database/
