That is the great thing about EC2. You can do massive experiments on the cheap.
Actually one of our interns is doing some work on ZODB. He is doing
calculations on efficiency of ZODB. i.e. how structure of ZODB
Filestorage could be changed to
better use disk cache, etc. Possibly interesting to the community at large.
For more information about ZODB, see the ZODB Wiki:
