Brian Aker: 20GB doesn’t fit on a single server at Xaprb

Brian Aker: 20GB doesn’t fit on a single server at Xaprb: “Users shouldn’t need to put that data onto multiple machines anyway. In fact, I don’t think we need a multi-machine solution for the common case at all. We need software that can scale up with today’s hardware. 37signals likes to run boxes with half a terabyte of RAM. Are we there yet with MySQL and InnoDB? No. Postgres? No. Anything open-source? Not that I know of. We’ve got database software that can only do a fraction of what it should be able to on that size of server.”

Da kann ich nur zustimmen. Unser kleiner Service arbeitet auf einer einzigen Maschine, was durch eher geringen Benutzerzahlen auch sinnvoll ist. Dennoch gibt es schon Performance-Probleme. Da fängt man tatsächlich an über Parallelisierung nachzudenken, ohne das man die Anwendung und Datenbanken durch den Profiler jagt und optimiert.
