Comment: Hire a DBA (Score 1) 222

by knavel (#34274048) Attached to: Horizontal Scaling of SQL Databases?

Most of the time, when someone says they're having trouble scaling their database, it's a case of a developer that has an incorrectly configured database. Installing MySQL is easy, but configuring it is VERY difficult. That's why you need a person with very specialized knowledge to properly configure a database for efficiency or throughput or whatever you're going for in your specific case.

It would be like saying that anyone can go to a hardware store, buy some lumber, and nail them together to create a rudimentary shelter, but if you want a *house*, something that will weather the elements and keep you warm and comfortable and secure, you need to hire a professional carpenter.
