NAME

Prophet

DESCRIPTION

Prophet is a distributed database system designed for small to medium scale social database applications. Our early targets include things such as bug tracking.

Design goals

Arbitrary record schema
Replication
Disconnected operation
Peer to peer synchronization

Design constraints

Scaling

We don't currently intend for the first implementation of Prophet to scale to databases with millions of rows or hundreds of concurrent users. There's nothing that makes the design infeasible, but the infrastructure necessary for such a system will...needlessly hamstring it.
