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
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.
- 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%).
