Very off-topic: Is there a name for the architecture I see a lot in NodeJS and Python circles where RDBMS (e.g., PostgreSQL) is avoided like the plague and as much work as possible is handed to nginx?


@tom: which work would that be? I am curiously interested, just cannot imagine something that a RDBMS can do that can be replaced by nginx? Only thing I can think of is that nginx redirects to some memecache instance instead to the web application, but even that. Could you elaborate on that?
