microkv is a persistent key-value store implemented in Rust, aiming to maintain a balance between security and performance. It is built out of a yearning to learn more about the intricacies of distributed systems, databases, and secure persistent storage.
While microkv shouldn’t be used in large-scale environments that facilitate an insane volume of transactional interactions, it is still optimal for use in a production-grade system/application that may not require the complex luxuries of a full-blown database or even industry-standard KV-store like Redis or LevelDB.
Here are some specific use-cases that you may want to use microkv for:
- Local persistent serialization for sensitive configurations
- Secrets management for a single-process application
- License key management
