Description

As organizations grow, so does the data that is getting processed; sooner or later there is too much data to comfortably reside on a single database master. This talk will outline some of the options and trade-offs then present practical development and operational small-step techniques used at Booking.com for dividing one database master to two database masters without down-time.
