Hi Karsten,
My impression was that the content repository can make use of a number of storage mechanisms, among which would be relational database products. Wouldn't the scalability/availability issues be solved by 'simply' using a resilient solution for this, like a DB cluster? Or am I painting a too simple picture here?
