We have a new PM for a new project that plans on implenting Jive. As such he dosn't have much experice with Jive and would had some questions about scalability.
-HowJive architected to scale and perform?
-What does the database look like. Facebook is a graph design, with basically two types of structures, nodes and leaves. This is similar to a file system and can be very flat and fast. The database design is promoted all the way to the page creation with little or not abstraction layers.
-The most significant component that allows Facebook to scale is the memcache. Does Jive use a data cache for page generation to reduce the trips to the database?
