InfiniSQL is a massively scalable relational database system (RDBMS), composed entirely from scratch (not built upon some other technology).

The limitation of 12 nodes was budgetary: this is an open source project entirely funded out of pocket, and not part of an institution. If I had access to more servers, I'm positive that scalability would grow much higher. But those kinds of details are on the blog. The bottomline is that this is a very high performance system, and in its infancy. » Read more
