I see that MongoDB is not a preferred solution here because of the 32-bit limitation. Can someone tell me what other feasible option I have, for storing large amounts of key-value pairs? I don't need any joins or a really structured database. I just need to be able to access these pairs by key and do range search on the key (i.e., return all rows which have an id greater than a given value, to extract the newest entries).

Of course, low memory consumption is a priority.

Any ideas or experiences? Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I've looked through a few different key value stores but it looks like most of them have the same 32-bit limitations and the same problems with using as much RAM as the size of the data set. You might want to just do this with MySQL or PostgreSQL, instead of creating a big relational table, just create a key and a value table then you can query it based on the parameters you have listed.

Hope that helps!
