Overview

Stores objects in multiple storage backends simultaneously with dictionary-style access, caching, and object serialization and compression.

Currently supported storage backends are:

  • Amazon S3 Web Service
  • Berkeley Source Database
  • Memory
  • Filesystem
  • Firebird
  • FTP
  • DBM
  • Durus
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • MySQL
  • Oracle
  • PostgreSQL
  • SQLite
  • Subversion
  • Zope Object Database (ZODB)

Currently supported caching backends are:

  • Memory
  • Filesystem
  • Firebird
  • memcache
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • MySQL
  • Oracle
  • PostgreSQL
  • SQLite

The use of multiple backends for storage involves passing multiple store URIs or instances to multishove following the form::

from multishove import MultiShove

<storename> = MultiShove(<store_uri1>, <store_uri2> ..., cache=<cache_uri>)

multishove implements the Python dictionary/mapping API:

multishove requires the shove package from:
