Hi Sean,

For a truly next-gen solution, check out GLASS (http://seaside.gemstone.com/).

You'll be rid of the RDBMS legacy forever :) There are many deployment options as GemStone is a world-class solution. I've been running a GS solution for many years and it has NEVER stopped working unexpectedly.
