Discussion on: Is a Redis ORM a Horrible Idea?

Oooh now I understand. Writes on normalized tables (with index rewrites and such) can be slow. I'm not 100% up to date on MySQL (I main use PostgreSQL) but I remember there's the possibility of having a JSON column for destructured data. Maybe you can test that before moving to a separate NoSQL DB.

I would test a JSON column, then if it's still too slow I would consider a separate DB. Maintaining one DB is still better than multiple DBs :D

Let us know about your findings, I'm very curious!
