There’s a lot of talk in the devops world about bringing developer concepts to system administration, and discussion the other way about bringing the awareness of operations to developers, but a lot of the conversation leaves out what is often the most critical part of your technology stack: the database. Perhaps that’s because DBA’s have always had to keep one foot in development and one in production, before there was a devops. Or maybe DBA’s just suck at playing well with others. Bottom line; it doesn’t matter. If you are going to store data, you need a plan that both developers and operations people can understand and embrace.

At OmniTI we’ve worked with many of the leaders in the devops movement and we’ve found there are commonalties across these organizations. It’s not so much about the tools, but about the techniques they use to help people break down barriers between different roles and establish a common ownership of technology within their organizations.

Monitoring and visibility, managing schema changes and production pushes, optimization, configuration and backups; there are aspects to data storage that bring about unique challenges. You won’t need to adopt all of these techniques to be successful, but it’s time you had a frank conversation about what it takes to make your database truly “webscale”.

Slides from PGOpen 2011, But this talk was also delivered at Velocity 2011 as well.
