After spending years working on the server side of cloud software I’ve yet to find a really good solution. Tools and libraries help to overcome some of the lacks but are only a stopgap measure. What I really want is a high level language that addresses the needs of big, C10K, server side.
- data structures that map seamlessly onto databases
- data structures that have locking built in
- stateful objects that can be started on a thread, suspended and later restart on another thread
- direct interfacing to RPC’s
- … more to follow
Given I’m grossly overworked already I doubt I’ll have time to work on this at the moment but maybe in the future
