MySQL Sharding

A few weeks ago we had a presentation in the Israeli MySQL User Group, where we presented "How Sharding turned MySQL into the Internet de-facto database standard?"
This presentation dealt with the common belief in the enterprise software world that MySQL cannot scale to large databases sizes. The Internet industry proved it can be done. These days many of the Internet giants, processing billions of events every day, are based on MySQL. Most of these giants were able to turn MySQL into a mighty database machines by implementing Sharding.
In the attached presentation from SlideShare we answer the following questions: What is Sharding? What kinds of Sharding can you implement? What are the best practices?

Keep Performing,
Moshe Kaplan. RockeTier. The Performance Experts.
