MMORPG database use

Posted 05 November 2012 - 02:41 PM

I am looking for some good technical articles that talk about how data bases are employed in MMORPG's. WoW, D3, EvE, any game would be fine...but I would like the article to be referenced to a specific game if possible! (I am having a hard time finding anything worthwhile).

Or, if someone has some experience working in that field of data management that would be cool too.

Thanks!

Here is an old dev blog from 2009 about the upgrades they did back then on EVE's databases. I remember sitting through a much more detailed presentation about it at one of the fanfests, but I can't remember exact details. Perhaps there is a recording of it somewhere. It obviously didn't go into enough details to give away any trade secrets, but it was pretty interesting nonetheless.
