Subject RE: Bench marking a simple 10k write

Haha.. Thanks for that info Jens... I should have pointed out as well... currently it's about
Apple and oranges... SQL Server is allowed to have money allocated to it and everything in
the NoSQL space for comparison (so far) has been free...and even at that bench mark level,
magic happens... I haven't even begun getting into Couchbase, Neo4J and paid models of other
NoSQL database (MongoDB, etc) ... I'm purely demonstrating how the current free open source
community can stand up to the big giants first.
