Drupal 7 slower but more scalable

Drupal, the powerful and popular free and open source  Content Management System will be slower, but more scalable and more easily able to handle larger sites in version 7, which will probably be released sometime between June and September of this year. Scalability can imply a number of things in systems design, but in this context it means the ability to increase the size or load of a system without thoroughly redesigning the system itself. This is desirable if a web site is either a large and complex one or starts off small and experiences rapid growth.

The article Drupal Upgrade to Be Slower but More Scalable on the PCWorld website reports on Drupal project founder Dries Buytaert's statement on the release at the DrupalCon meeting in San Francisco.

For a shorter summary here's a clip from the YouTube channel BCS1957.
