I'm not familiar with Hibernate, but I'm a HUGE advocate of abstraction
at functional levels. (e.g. classic MVC designs). Generally, what's good
today may not be good tomorrow, and having unencumbered interfaces lets
you swap in what makes the most amount of sense with the least impact to
The nice thing about Key/value is that you've got the most amount of
flexibility around what you actually use to store data; Postgres, MySQL,
Redis, Memcache, heck an in memory hash can all do it.
As for which data store you actually use, that's kinda driven by what
you expect your load to be. If you're only talking a few thousand
clients with a dozen channels, each getting an update when a flights
status changes, then you're not talking about putting a huge strain on
your storage or it's Read/Write capacity. If you've got a few hundred
million clients and some partners who've decided to use your system as
part of their FPS game updates, then you've got lots more problems.
(And now you start to understand why I wake up in a cold sweat screaming
about how you don't use SimplePush for real time stock quotes.)

What about abstraction layer idea based on Hibernate OGM? Does it make any
sense to you? Currently is does support only Infinispan, EHCache and MongoDB
, so I guess it's out of question as well.
