I just don't get the whole "cache everything, and everything will be ok"
argument. The vast majority of the slow tasks I've seen in the past ten
years have all executed "in cache" to begin with!

...And fixing them has, almost every time, required either optimization =
of
SQL, or optimization of the application code that calls the SQL. I just
don't see how /any/ database can defend itself against all the types of
abuse that an application developer can throw at it.

No, I have not heard of them.

The web site refers to in-memory products, and Cache immediately
springs to mind. If you have ever looked at that product, and can
remember Adabas, there are remarkable similarities. The key question
to ask of these vendors is what data model their product supports. The
answers can be interesting...
