Berkeley DB usage in high-traffic CMS websites? - 04-28-2006 , 09:04 PM
My experience with Berkeley DB is limited to small databases on desktop
applications, but from my understanding Berkeley is more than suitable
in high availability / high traffic scenarios. Are there any examples of
CMS sites or other sites that like Slashdot, Myspace, and WashingtonPost
that make many thousand database transactions a day running off Berkeley
I have heard that the blogging application Movable Type supports
Berkeley DB, but I am really only interested in large scale sites that
get many thousands to millions of hits a day.
As a side question, how would Berkeley DB stack up next to RDBMSs like
MySQL and PostgreSQL aside from the obvious lack of SQL language support?
