MySQL sharding is one of the most used and surely the most abused MySQL scaling technology. My April 2 Dzone article, “To Shard, or Not to Shard,” proved there is indeed quite an interest in this topic.
As such, I’m hosting a live webinar tomorrow (April 22) that will shed light on questions about sharding with MySQL. It’s titled: To Shard or Not to Shard That is the Question!
I’ll be answering questions such as:
- Is sharding right for your application or should you use other scaling technologies?
- If you’re sharding, what things do you need to consider and which questions do you need to have answered?
- What kind of specific technologies can assist you with sharding?
I hope you can make it for this April 22 webinar. It starts at 10 a.m. Pacific time. Please register now and bring your questions, as sharing them with me and the other attendees is half of the fun of live webinars. 🙂
Or if you prefer, share your questions about sharding with MySQL in the comments section below, and I’ll do my best to answer them. I’ll be writing a followup post that will include all questions and my answers soon. A recording of this webinar along with my slides will also be available here afterwards.
