I want to store a large rectangular volume of floats, and it’d be nice if every single lattice point had its own entry in the database (so I could pick it out individually). If you include the namespace, that means that the values will be much smaller than their keys. They keys will also be dense.
In many environments, feeding the lattice into a key-value store would be one of the worst possible ideas, but FDB may be clever enough to make it work. Will FDB’s internal optimizations handle this abuse gracefully, or would there be something to gain in chunking my data into larger values?
