Tokyo Cabinet and CouchDB as Mnesia backends

If you are somehow familiar with Erlang you already know that Mnesia is a distributed database system that was designed with the following goals in mind:

  • Fast real-time key/value lookup
  • Complicated non real-time queries mainly for operation and maintenance
  • Distributed data due to distributed applications
  • High fault tolerance
  • Dynamic re-configuration
  • Complex objects

Even if the presentation is not so great (see below), Rickard Cardell’s experiments of using Tokyo Cabinet and CouchDB as Mnesia backends sound like a new and interesting usecase for NoSQL solutions.
