We think the Zope Object Database is fast enough to handle the initial specifications for SchoolTool. That is, handling the administrative needs of a school of roughly a thousand students. It is difficult to predict at what size the responsiveness of the system may be bound by database performance, but many very large, high-traffic web sites currently use the ZODB without problems.
