THE PROS & CONS OF DATABASE SCALING OPTIONS
An analysis of traditional and modern architectures

As cloud and container-based environments become ubiquitous, organizations are increasingly moving away from high-performance static hardware to dynamically changing, virtual, commodity infrastructure. Systems need to expand and contract easily to meet an ever-changing demand – and that includes the database.

In this white paper, consultant Craig Mullins examines the various methods used to accomplish database availability and elasticity, as well as introduces a new architectural option for database scaling.

You'll learn about the architectural advantages and disadvantages of:

  • Shared-Disk  
  • Shared-Nothing
  • Database Sharding
  • Replication
  • NoSQL
  • Elastic SQL
