Performance comparison: key/value stores for language model counts - Brendan O'Connor's Blog
I’m doing word and bigram counts on a corpus of tweets. I want to store and rapidly retrieve them later for language model purposes. So there’s a big table of counts that get incremented many times. The easiest way to get something running is to use an open-source key/value store; but which? There’s recently been some development in this area so I thought it would be good to revisit and evaluate some options.
