Most of the times when working with online games we run into the need to persist data that is produced by the games. This can be anything from hand history to game state to audit trails for remote calls to other systems. But what they usually have in common is that it is high volume writes, hardly any updates, some reads and that the data has large variation in what we need to store even if it is within the same context.
