Here is a very detailed and interesting article about the growth of MySpace and the technical hurdles it faced and how they tried to correct them. It seems that most of the actions were re-active rather than pro-active. I am no database expert so I thought to put out this question to all the Oracle database experts. Had they used Oracle 10g, and designed their website around Oracle technology, then could they have eliminated some of their database related issues?
Please share your thoughts. It would be interesting to know what issues they could have avoided and what issues they couldn’t have resolved with the use of Oracle 10g.
