Running a forum off a document database?

Feb 6, 2013 at 6:18 AM
Could it be done? Would it make sense?

Document databases (MongoDB, RavenDB etc.) are good at scaling up and out, a very nice feature when talking forums, we all want our forum to be lightning fast, even when it has 1000s and 1000s og users and millions of threads and posts.

So is this worth looking into?
