Persevere, a NoSQL database

I've read quite a bit about client-server architecture but the fundamental problem seems like a scalability issue. Maintaining session state and generating not only the model(data) but also the view on the server side is asking for problems. And de(serialization) of your data between a relational database and your domain model sounds like a time consuming operation. Some databases like CouchDB and Persevere skip this tedious task and since the data is stored as JSON, it's immediately usable in the browser. So it's a matter of providing efficient ways to store and query the data from within the browser.

I was reading through Persevere and Pintura documentation and it's definitely worthwile to build a little sample app with these technologies to get a better understanding. To be continued real soon...
