The following page has been changed by BenBrowning:

  == High-Level Design Goals ==
   * Increase total write throughput by allowing a database to scale across multiple physical
   * Increase total read throughput for multiple concurrent clients when fetching documents
by id
+  * Increase total storage capacity by spreading the storage across multiple machines
   * Make the partitioned database appear as a single database via the HTTP API, keeping compatibility
with existing client implementations
   * Allow the partition topology to be configurable to support different performance needs
