It looks to me like you're approaching this backwards.  Start with your
requirements for data storage and then compare how well the various
technologies meet those requirements.  It sounds like you're trying to
pick a technology first and then force-fit your requirements to it, and
while that's a very common temptation, it seldom results in good design.
