doesn't handle concurrency, so every so often you get some "database
locked" errors. SQLite is good for development stage, but for production
sites, don't use it.

BTW, I don't see a problem using PostgreSQL as a database server.
Especially for low traffic sites, the performance should be fine.

Never mind. Just a pun about this "cloud hype" terminology.
