Show me a company that has solved Database scaling and I will show you one that hasn’t. As we all know, databases continue to be the primary scaling challenge within any organization. Various techniques have been applied to address this challenge. Sharding is one of the options that most DB Architects consider when scaling the DB tier especially for SaaS, Social Networking and Online Service Providers. DB Applications that demand high throughput and high number of read/write transactions tend to implement Sharding or “Shared-Nothing”. Sharding although conceptually simple, can easily get complicated to implement due extensive application modifications. Also when sharding, DBAs have to take into consideration scaling/adding more shards/servers without application downtime.
