>>>ZRS is only required for replication, not scaling, for which ZEO exists. Then run a single zope zeo client per processor core. ZODB makes data partitioning (database mounts) simple as well.
Laurence<<<< My interpretation of this statement is as follows. You can store information in separate partitions of the ZODB, and ZEO will route requests to the appropriate partition. Is that true only for Zope 3, or is it true for Zope 2.1x as well? Would Zope applications need to be rewritten to support multiple partitions? Or is it all transparent to the developer? Has anyone actually ever tried that on a massive scale? What are the largest and busiest functional partitioned ZODB instances in active use? _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3email@example.com http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
