Mnesia and Oracle
Thu Aug 10 23:28:06 CEST 2006
First of all, I do not want to be flamed here ;-) so, I want to stress out
that as much I've tried to get rid of mnesia, I did not found anything
Look, despite the fact that more and more money has been invested in the
network infrastructure, it seems that networks are less stable than before.
It is my experience that deploying distributed mnesia with table replication
over such a network, invariantly leads to problems -- mnesia gets
partitioned, and, depending on how complex the data model is, it might be
quite a difficult job to recover & re-syncronize. Now, as Ulf pointed out
once, it is not that other databases have a better solution, it is just that
problem is of such a nature that it is very dificult to solve it in a
generic way (or one-fits-all kind of way). This is why it was easier for (at
least) me to develop specialised journaling system, and have complete
control over what happens if and when network lets me down. There.
