Another PHP programmer responsible for things like the MicroMVC PHP framework.

You may notice that some of my questions run very deep into the heart of certain issues because I strive for the highest optimization that is possible in my apps.

@quanta I tried what you just posted but it doesn't work. I updated my question with the new block.

comment Downtimeless MySQL backups on a budget
You can buy servers for a lot cheaper than $150 a month. 7GB does not sound like that much data. You can buy disposable 128MB servers for as little as $1.50 a month and more impressive 1GB ones for about $20. Since there is no need for a query cache you can easily handle plenty of writes with a GB of RAM and a server with an SSD.

comment If I send data to my computer using its public hostname, does it actually go over the internet?
So basically, "that's the last traceroute he'll ever run"

comment In memory key/value store using integer keys (not string hashes)
I guess that is true, I looked but I couldn't find one. However, storing a 32-bit key (~4 billion) is actually 4x smaller than a 128 bit MD5 (or 160 bit sha1) key hash. The values are either very small strings or integers themselves so they size of the key really does make a difference. Still, I guess I don't have much choice but to throw more RAM at it.

comment Database which only holds indexes and last X records in memory?
Redis comes the closest. If only they didn't keep the data in memory.

Scalaris looks nice, but it doesn't store data on disk so you would need a node network setup if you didn't want to lose your data.

The problem is that Redis requires the data to be stored in RAM also (or swap space). You cannot have a Redis database with more memory than RAM + Swap. It's the same problem that memcached has. I can't fit 2GB of data in a membase or redis database on a 256MB VPS.
