Scalability. We built WireHose for lots of
reasons. One of them was the desire to satisfy the crazy,
world-dominating drive of overambitious dot-coms. The kind
that wanted to do things like deploy hundreds of insanely
high-traffic portals in a year. The kind that wanted to
provide personalized access to millions of pieces of content
to millions of users, across hundreds of affiliate portals,
each with its own branding and custom content.
That's why WireHose sports features like
micro-fine-tunable caching. And channel factories. And
global channels. And automatic subentity creation. And total
resource abstraction. And the ability to deploy identical
codebases with not-so-identical appearances and
Of course, not every WireHose application needs all this.
But it's nice to know it's there when you do.
