Description Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-08-24 20:41:46 UTC
MediaWiki should support NoSQL
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2011-08-24 20:43:00 UTC

Does memcached provide a permanent store?
Comment 3 Max Semenik 2011-08-25 03:50:04 UTC
Comment 4 Daniel Friesen 2011-08-25 06:55:27 UTC
Extension:Cassandra is just a text store. SQL + KV-store != NoSQL.
Comment 5 Max Semenik 2011-08-25 07:46:03 UTC
But it's webscale! Outrageous!
Comment 6 Max Semenik 2011-09-04 10:21:26 UTC
Per we should aim for /dev/null instead.

Why not just support the BLACKHOLE storage engine ( ) in MySQL ? Is MongoDB more efficient at storing no data ?
What about /dev/null ? Is it better or worse than MongoDB ?
If it is, I support this featreq.
