Membase Community Edition - Ready for production environments?
sorry, had difficulty getting my password for my other account (the @tombola.com one) so had to create another account.
We're currently using the community edition of membase in our product rewrite, which thankfully hasn't yet gone to production.
We have had any number of problems with random crashes, most notably along the same lines as:
I tweeted yesterday that I was about to switch from Membase to AppFabric and Matt Ingenthron (@ingenthr) replied asking if there was anything you guys could do to help.
I guess my question is, is membase community version ready for production environments? The bugs above are all valid bugs, and as yet there don't appear to have been any rapid fixes unless you go commercial, and that really isn't an option for us at present. I understand (and support) the business model you guys are taking, and understand you want to have a revenue stream, and I like the way you've placed limits on the way you scale with the community edition. But to have a product with bugs that is significantly delayed in fixes when they are found isn't really an option for us.
I'm attempting a final re-install of the enterprise edition today in the hopes that at least in our dev environment I can get something that works for more than a day or two, but it'd be useful if you guys could address the 'delayed hotfixes' issue on your community product.
Keen to continue using this product, but obviously can't roll something into production that crashes every 2 days.
Thanks for any and all updates on this.
