Subject Question on scalability
Date Thu, 03 Jul 2008 16:37:55 GMT
I am currently working on a project that has the need to store 100
million images every year. We tend to keep the images for around 18
months. So at any one time we will have about 150 million images in the
repository. The question I have is does this sound reasonable to store
this quantity of images in JackRabbit or does this sound scary? I worry
about retrieval of the items. 


I also noticed there is a clustering feature but the documentation
seemed to point you to using the DB for file storage. We have been down
the route of letting the DB store file data in the past and it has never
turned out to be something that worked well and I don't think I can get
people convinced of again. 


We were planning on building something but we are getting a little push
back on why we don't use a JCR. Does anyone have a write up on something
of this scale that they could share?


A little more information on the images. Each node would have some sort
of id (UUID) that we use to find the images. Each node (with all
sub-nodes may be using wrong vocabulary here) would have 5-7 images and
corresponding data. 


Thank you for any help and thank you for your time
