mysql vs oracle

2000-10-17 11:56:49+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Unconfirmed rumor from the Linux Showcase floor: The first christmas that EToys.com lasted through they had zero down-time running on Perl and MySQL. Last year they ran on Java and Oracle and had quite a bit more. I'll work on tracking down sources.

It'd also be interesting to know about how much traffic they got over the Christmas season for those two years. I wouldn't be surprised at some downtime if the Java+Oracle setup got 10x the traffic as the Perl/MySQL one. If the traffic volume was about the same, then this would be a very interesting result.
