comment Redis Server: RAM
This is a poor question. Capacity needs are determined by the size of your dataset in almost any circumstance.

@Ali - You need to implement each solution and benchmark how your app/site behaves.

comment Outgrew MongoDB … now what?
RDBMS's don't have some magical "read quickly from disk" ability that nothing else does. Indices are meant to be in RAM, and reading from disk is slow; those are facts of life. My contention is that you have too much Index for your hardware. You either need to be more selective about what you index, or invest in hardware. But plainly you believe that you have the ULTIMATE MongoDB setup, and nobody could improve upon it. I have tried to help you, but you plainly don't want to listen. I'm done feeding the trolls. Best of luck to you...

I can't tell if he's trolling, being deliberately obtuse, or really think that downloading a linux distro entitles him to a free PC. Has vgv8 returned?!

@samsmith FOSS "is software that is liberally licensed to grant users the right to use, study, change, and improve its design through the availability of its source code." You still have to provide hardware to run it on. By all means, use commercial software if it meets your needs, but you will still have to purchase the hardware in addition to the software... I can't tell if you're trolling, being deliberately obtuse, or really think that downloading a linux distro entitles you to a free PC.

comment Active Directory for 4 branch offices and 1 head office
Researching the capabilities of different products (SBS vs. Standard) is basic prerequisite homework. If you can't be bothered to put in even that much effort, you will not find this community to be willing to help.

Oh, snap! 10gen has done a remarkable job with documentation, presentations, outreach, and community support. It is especially surprising given how small their team is.

I personally find the "Bottom line: MongoDB is FOSS, but we gotta spend $$$$$$$ on hardware to run it? We sould rather buy commercial SW!" to scream of ignorance and arrogance.

But seriously, if you feel that you absolutely must keep indexes of that size, you're going to have the same problem of keeping abominably huge indexes in RAM in any database product you seek out. You would have to buy a high-capacity server (DL380 G7 can make that, and it's a mid-range commodity server; nothing exotic) to store those indexes.

You may not like the answers to your "scaling" problem because you don't actually have a scaling problem; you have a design and implementation problem. You are not indexing efficiently.

comment Setting the hostname: FQDN or short name?
This is pretty much the setup I use at work. The shortname should be fine as long as the domain name is in the DNA search path (/etc/resolv.conf) for the relevant machines in your environment
