You might be aware we had decided to use two different databases to store game related information. Microsoft SQL Server for the majority of the data and MongoDB for all the map data.
Recently we scrapped SQL completely and will be 100% Mongo. Currently we are migrating across. Hopefully we’ll be finished with this before the end of October. It certainly is the right choice for Ilkor, there is no doubt about that, but there is quite a learning curve for us, coming from a SQL background.
If anyone is interested in the finer technical detail then by all means drop us a message and we’ll be only too happy to discuss the topic in more depth.
One rather large advantage is the fact that MongoDB is free. So that suits us just fine considering the game will be free to play.
