Akiban table-grouping co-locates related data that belongs together.
Bring your data model to the DB and eliminate the relational mismatch.
Data can be fetched in simple, sequential operations to make queries consistently fast -- like accessing a single table.
"The big win for me is not having to jury-rig MySQL or psql column to be de-normalized. Having to install a NoSQL DB alongside and replicating the data is overly complicated and the less infrastructure I have to deal with, the better"
