Subject: [HACKERS] Real-world usage example
> I use a version control system called StORE which uses a relational
> database as it's back end. I use StORE with PostgreSQL, others use it
> with DB2, Oracle, etc ....
> I mention StORE here because it struck me that it may be a useful source
> of real-world information about how PostgreSQL performs relative to
> other DBMSs. StORE databases all use the same Schema, and some are
> replicated such that they contain the same data too.
> PostgreSQL is the most popular database for StORE users, and is used for
> a central Smalltalk community repository (StORE is a Smalltalk specific
> version control system). The public StORE repository is accessed across
> the Internet by people with Modems, WiFi, T1 and LAN connections.
> There have been a number of people comment on how PostgreSQL performs as
> a StORE repository - some good comments, some not so good. Either way,
> given the varied use of StORE, the feedback may yield valuable
> The place to look for feedback from StORE users is the news group

> I hope this is useful.
> All the best,
> BTW, I wrote the PostgreSQL driver for VisualWorks Smalltalk which is
> how all StORE + PostgreSQL users access their databases.
