From the webpage:
It’ll be available as a gem.
We are in the early design/implementaiton phase.
- Ordered key-value store / document store
- REST api
- Scales with ease

The MonoTable Data Structure
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.” -Einstein
MonoTable stores all data in a single table. The table consists of records sorted by their keys. Each record, in addition to their key, can have 0 or more named fields. Basicaly, it’s a 2-dimensional hash where the first dimension supports range selects.
Sounds interesting but remember that Einstein may have been wrong about other issues: Models, Relativity & Reality.
