Rightscale Webinar: The number one cause of poor scalable web application performance is the database. This problem is magnified in cloud environments where I/O and bandwidth are generally slower and less predictable than in dedicated data centers. Database sharding is a highly effective method of removing the database scalability barrier by operating on top of proven RDBMS products such as MySQL and PostgreSQL.
In this webinar, you'll learn what it really takes to implement sharding, the role it plays in the effective end-to-end lifecycle management of your entire database environment, and why it is crucial for ensuring reliability.
In this webinar, we will:
- Guide you on how to choose the best technology for your specific application
- Show you how to shard your existing database
- Review a case study on a Top 20 Facebook application built on dbShards
