[XML-SIG] xml vs. sql
Mon, 07 Jan 2002 09:22:26 -0800
I'm considering building a data-centric website using xml instead of the
usual SQL database. I expect the site will receive about 1000 hits per
day. There will never be more than a couple thousand records in the
data. I'm planning on using Apache, mod_python and Python's minidom.
The benefits of doing without the database are:
1. the data will be highly portable
2. the data will not be subject to corruption
3. no need for DB admin
1. Slow processing under load
Any thing else I need to consider?
Anyone care to share past experiences doing the same?
