Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to web hosting services supporting postgresql?

There was a longish discussion last year on about the possibility of doing something like this (see for the details). Janine from Furfly indicated that they looked into the idea, using Oracle at Exodus, and found that it would be too expensive, and it could be hard to prevent one poorly-written app from affecting others on the same box. I am not inclined to dispute her far superior experience, but am still entertaining the idea, given that postgres costs so much less than Oracle, and hoping to find a way around the interference problem. (not sure what that way is, just yet, though.)
