I didn't say "don't use a database". The cache that you refer to is that 500 GB of RAM.

"One billion comments stored in $fancydatabase!" Impressive! Assume 500 bytes per message. That's 500 GB RAM, which is about $3,000 retail.

When you see a blog post about "$x million records in $fancydatabase", always ask yourself how much it would cost to just keep them in RAM.
