Just a note that this does not work for a Magento setup. Still investigating the reasons but I think it has something to do with the query string.

comment Distributed Storage Filesystem - Which one/Is there a ready to use product?
Eons ago, I used to use a variant of AFS (what is now OpenAFS). It worked but was complex and had it's own set of quirks.

comment How do you choose a MySQL database engine
Obviously, performance is not the only requirement although I believe the original request was asking more about perf. Other considerations such as operational (as you point out) and features will all play a part in the selection process.

comment Pay no attention to that SAN behind the curtain
Well, handwaving is bad in general =) Any performance work should always have quantifiable numbers associated with it. RAID5 in general is a bad idea for a DB workload. But that's just my opinion.

comment Pay no attention to that SAN behind the curtain
Well, note that I am not saying not to use a SAN. I have overseen some fairly massive datacenter buildouts that work just fine. The more important thing is having a better understanding of how IO works at different levels and making sure that they work well together.

comment Setting up SSL on my server
This only works if there is one domain. The problem still exists if there is more than one domain.
