May you mention some or some sites on the internet that run Zope/ZODB
to have some examples?

Since ZODB is the default storage of Zope, every Zope site on the net *uses*
the ZODB.

maybe PGStorage?

My problem is that I'm quite confident that ZODB may be able to handle
the application, but I have to convince some other people too. They are
coming with a strong RDB background. I would appreciate some facts to
hit them hard.

Both RDBMS and ZODB have their pros and cons. It really depends on your individual usecase..also hybrid solutions using ZODB and a RDBMS are daily practice. If your data is highly relational then go for a RDBMS solution on top of Zope, if you data is more hierarchical or loosely coupled, think about the ZODB. The ZODB is not a good choice for storing and serving large amounts of binary data (files).....you must make the decision on a per-case basis...
