Indeed. There are a lot of applications which data is never traversed in a relational way. But there are other concerns to be raised on using a denormalized schema. Concurrency being the most important IMHO, database systems like PostgreSQL do a great deal of effort to behave nice and easy with a lot of concurrent access, but you can only benefit from it as long as your database is kindly normalized, otherwise there isn't much that can be done.

But I can't really say at which extent it matters, to which kind of application, at which volume of access. But at least as far as my experience goes, most of the time the bottlenecks are on the persistency, and there's a lot of science in making RDBMS scale.

Of course I'm not talking about the "solve the RDBMS scaling issue with memcached" paradigm.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
