Because of the way Postres g9 / PostgreSQL is using their file system, I think it is not as efficient as it could be. They should start deploying a more effective file system structure to improve… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Oracle RAC and Informix. The single reason for moving off Oracle was the hard limit of four servers in a RAC and the degradation of performance at that. Meaning Oracle… more»

What other advice do I have?
