The Perl DBI now includes DBD::Gofer -- a new stateless-proxy technology with pluggable transport layers. It's the "next big thing" for Perl DBI. Do you want access to remote databases over unreliable links? Need high availability? Connection pooling? Scaling to thousands of clients? Result-set caching?

By avoiding the need for a permanent connection to a stateful proxy server, proxy requests can be treated more like web requests. Proven web technologies can then be applied to your Perl DBI database traffic.
