In a former life, about three years ago, I was working as a database engineer on very large database system using SQL Server and Oracle and I had about 20 years experience with database systems. Things haven't changed that much in three years and I am flabbergasted by the fact that IS trying to run a computer system as large and complex as they are off of MySQL!!! Oracle, Microsoft and IBM all have systems that could easily handle the load they describe without a hiccup... IS spend a little money (well, OK a lot of money) and upgrade to some real software!!! sorry for the vent... back to your normal programming ;D

I've heard the same thing from other programmers. Truly baffling.

In their latest update they said they were switching (if you read it carefully). They say their switching away from the Master-Slave configuration, meaning away from MySQL.
