Complex normalized schemas can make database systems slow and inefficient. This presentation explores a storage layer that eliminates most joins in such systems by pre-joining the data. Data in this storage layer can be accessed using an object API without the overhead of an object-relational mapping layer. It can also be accessed using standard SQL for efficient complex multi-table reporting. Read more.
