Database scalability means different things to different people. Vertical vs. Horizontal scaling? Federating vs. Sharding? Despite the labels database scalability tends to fall into a few common patterns that anyone can apply. In this talk we'll discuss factors for applying these patterns including the life-cycle of your database, how hardware affects your choices, and tools to help you on the way

The need for database systems that scale efficiently has led to many alternatives to the traditional RDBMS. This talk presents an overview of these new non-relational databases, collectively referred to as "NoSQL," followed by an in-depth examination of SourceForge.net's deployment of MongoDB, an open-source NoSQL database.

Sharding is a hot topic. Every big web site is using some sharding technique with home made solutions. The quest for the silver bullet goes on without apparent good results. This session will present two MySQL storage engines (Spider and Vertical partitioning) that implement transparent sharding techniques.
