NAME ^

Prophet

DESCRIPTION ^

Prophet is a distributed database system designed for small to medium scale database applications (currently up to around 50,000 records of a given type). Our early targets include things such as bug tracking.

Design goals

Arbitrary record schema

Replication

Disconnected operation

Peer to peer synchronization

Design constraints

Scaling

We don't currently intend for the first implementation of Prophet to scale to databases with millions of rows or hundreds of concurrent users. There's nothing that makes the design infeasible, but the infrastructure necessary for such a system will...needlessly hamstring it.
