How your very large databases can work in the cloud computing world?
Presented by Moshe Kaplan from RockeTier, a performance expert and scale out architect at the IGT Cloud Computing work group at April 20, 2009
Cloud computing is famous for its flexibility, dynamic nature and ability to infinite growth. However, infinite growth means very large databases with billions of records in it. This leads us to a paradox: "How can weak servers support very large databases which usually require several CPUs and dedicated hardware?"
The Internet industry proved it can be done. These days many of the Internet giants, processing billions of events every day, are based on cloud computing architecture such and sharding. What is Sharding ? What kinds of Sharding can you implement? What are the best practices?
