CMS Platforms that Looks Attractive to Enterprises/Corporate Clients
Multiple database support is an attractive feature that Enterprise and Corporate clients have been seeking for some time now in a robust Content Management Service (CMS) platform. A CMS platform that is making that vision possible is Joomla. Joomla has long been one of the most trusted MySQL providers around. With its version 2.5/later, it is possible to run the Joomla! CMS on many different databases, not just MySQL and MySQLi. Joomla version 2.5/later facilitates integration and update management processes, allows different drivers to be written that will offer multi-database support. Current drivers exist for the MySQL, Microsoft SQL databases, PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQLite and PDO drivers including support for various versioning of these SQL databases.
Joomla 2.5/later also have features such as a natural language search engine and automatic delivery and notification of updates as well as new extensions. The addition of a new database to the framework of the PHP extraction layer allow better scalability.
