Subject Re: 2.x vs. 1.x speed
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2013 17:22:13 GMT
Thanks for sharing Julien, really informative.

We need to start profiling the performance for each Gora data store
and hopefully can take advantage of advance features from each backend
store with still provide good abstraction for application that use
Gora as in memory access to the underlying data.
