Open source and SaaS offerings rethink the DB

,----[ Quote ]
| Thrift, a tool that Facebook.com built and donated to the Apache software 
| project, isn't really a database. In fact, it's more of a pre-compiler that 
| converts a file describing the data structures into a pile of code in your 
| choice of languages. This code may need some extra libraries (Java comes with 
| some methods that serialize the data to an output stream), but it's ready to 
| include with your own code. The project includes formatters for many of the 
| major languages (including C, Perl, Java, PHP, and Python), and it aims to 
| honor the various idioms used by the programmers familiar with a language. 
| You give it the schema and it does the rest.
