Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes
Will your database performance meet your business growth needs?
Your company depends on applications to both run your business and connect to customers. For some of you, your business is an application. As your company grows, so must the performance and reach of these applications.
Behind just about every application is a database. As your applications grow, your database must grow. This growth requires an equal growth in performance.
Even though it is obvious that ensuring database performance and availability is very important for business’ success, many members of developer and operations teams don’t understand performance very well. This lack of understanding can either cause application performance problems, or prevent resolving them in a timely manner. For example, developers often test their code using a small database, when the application is meant to interact with a large one. This can mask scalability and performance issues.
In this white paper, we’ll look at some of the things you should be looking at when planning for performance that scales.
