> This story is a blow for PostgreSQL
> thoughts ?
The whole article is centred around a company moving away from
PostgreSQL to a vendor which they have not chosen at this point.
A whole article! It's not an article about a company choosing to DB2 or
MSSQL with a mention that they were using "an Opensource database" or
even a final comment stating that they have used PostgreSQL in the past
-- but a whole article around a company moving away from PostgreSQL.
You'll notice they mention "new database platform", which the author of
the piece implies will include both hardware and software. I bet Oracle
on a Quad Opteron and 8GB ram could beat the pants of PostgreSQL on a
Dual Xeon with 1GB ram ;)
Their qmail based mail solution is on a single Dell 1750 -- which also
deserved a mention for some reason.
Welcome to the big leagues -- we're making headlines on fluff pieces.
