If the run-time performance needs to be predictable, then a RDBMS is probably not the way to go. Garbage collection and index shifting/ restructuring may result in occasional pauses or slowdowns. Higher abstraction often results in less predictable run-time performance. (Less predictable and "slow" are not necessarily the same thing.)
