Social networking with Orchard

Oct 7, 2010 at 10:44 AM




I would like to understand if Orchard will be able to handle a heavily updated social networking site (in terms of database schema, caching and so on)?

Is there any expectation to when there will be a release?


Thank you very much

The best answer I can give you today is that we don't know (which at this point would mean no). We have not done a lot of performance work so far, but will do so before v 1.0, which is scheduled for January 2011. Also, the answer to that depends on how much you do on Orchard, whether you handle everything through it or do more custom stuff. I'd encourage you to do your own evaluation based on your own performance objectives once we have done this work. We would be very interested to hear and use any feedback you may have in this area, and to try to improve things on targeted scenarios.
