Thanks for doing this!
#4: "A free Plone add-on, RelStorage, also allows enterprises with
investments in Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL to store the data driving
their Plone site in their existing infrastructure for more robust
scalability, clustering and failover."
This implies that the ZODB doesn't scale, and that you choose Oracle to do
so — neither of which are true. ;)
I would drop the scalability argument, the main reason why people use it
is the "existing infrastructure/standards" and tool support for
failover/backup/clustering. So, something like:
"A free Plone add-on, RelStorage, also allows enterprises with investments
in Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL to store the data driving their Plone site
in their existing infrastructure to be able to make use of familiar tools,
clustering and failover solutions."
Not perfect, but you get the idea, and I'm sure you can make it better. :)
#5: Maybe mention something like "As an example, plone.org is one of the
few web sites in the world that has a 9 out of 10 PageRank in Google, the
same as major sites like those of IBM and Microsoft."
It's a nice soundbite that people remember, and it's true. :)
The document looks great!
