It might be helpful if you could add more constraints.
Which version of SQL server do you want to support? Just 2008 or
2012 or some Express Edition? Only 64bit servers and clients or 32bit?
sql server 2008. not sure about 64/32bit.
Are all clients also on Windows, which OS version, which versions of
Windows 2008 server standard. Python 2.6/2.7
What clustering options are you interested in if any? Do you want
I'm not sure. I think living without clustering and memcached for the
moment is fine.
And what about blob storage? Are blobs inside the DB in little
chunks enough, do you want them on the filesystem via shared network
drive or new efficient filestream support in SQL server 2008+
I don't know enough to answer this but for our purposes support SQL
Server in a basic capacity so Plone runs ok is enough to start with.
The fewer variables you have, the easier an estimate should be. And
just stating something like the expected data size, number of
clients and availability concerns might help.
Our need is to 'state' support for SQL server to our client. They have
SQL server licenses and they'd prefer to use them. The job is for 3
plone sites, public, extranet and intranet but with no estimate yet of
the data size. Availability concerns are an issue.
In the case where the work goes ahead and if performance is an issue
then we;d be in a better position to either implement greater support
for sqlserver or recommend they switch to a more mature relstorage
option. Hope that helps put things in context.
