For now you have to give up aggregate operations - operations like avg(age) are very expensive compared to SQL. Everything else is in the same order of magnitude. KiokuDB is roughly the same speed as DBIC for inflating objects
and SQLite or MySQL or BDB are all roughly the same speed for extracting records based on the primary key. In fact, BDB is about as fast as using the Hash backend for artificial benchmarks
-- KiokuDB project coordinator Yuval Kogman
