This is what I love about zope. It can be a much more flexible way to store data than in a relational db. Maybe some combination of zodb and s3 would be efficient. Zodb for frequently used business objects and a library (localfs modified ?) for storing data documents on s3. Could you update your plan when you get time?
Thanks!
