I can see how that could let Zope restart faster. But ZEO can have *severe* performance implications for large blobs such as videos. See the bottom of http://www.slinkp.com/code/zopestuff/blobnotes Maybe worth noting that DirectoryStorage starts up fast regardless of storage size. http://dirstorage.sourceforge.net/ It also does not require RAM proportional to storage size. It is also very reliable and has some other nice features. The downsides: - You need a filesystem that can handle very large number of tiny files. - Packing is VERY slow (21 GB could easily take all night). - Somewhat slower than Filestorage in general. - Requires more disk space (+30%).
