this sounds like relational thinking scenario... (no offense, I like 
relational systems)
As if you want to maintain the state of a lot of entities with updates & 
deletes, and you have a lot of state changes for your entities.

May be an eventstore/DDD approach would be a better model for that?

You could have an aggregate for each entity (ie. a record) you have in 
your system and insert a new event record on each update of this agregate.

For example if you had to track the position of a lot of objects, 
instead of updating the object records, each second you could insert a 
new event with : (object: object_id, event_type: position_move, position 
: x, y ).

Just a suggestion.
