We're developing a flexible, high-performance storage architecture for database-backed applications, based on a dynamic set of queries specified by the developer which Soup automatically optimizes.

Noria is an attempt at designing a database specifically tailored for web applications, providing automatic caching, safe and effortless schema migrations, and native support for reactive use.

Noria observes that, by having developers provide the set of queries their application will make in advance, the database can be smarter about how to execute those queries. In particular, it can choose to pre-compute, and incrementally maintain, the results for queries. This allows Noria to answer those queries quickly, and essentially obviates the need for application caches.
