We have a use case for BIDS where the root folder is shared with concurrent access (NFS/CIFS). For the moment we haven’t had any accidents (and there are backups), but as a ex-backend web developer, this makes me cringe – files are not suitable storage for concurrent access. We also have data protection requirements which do not allow for copying data all over the place.
I am curious if there are any efforts to build a BIDS server which would provide modern database guarantees (ACID) for the BIDS database? I have a few ideas how to do it, but I’d like to see if this is just us or there’d be wider interest.
