Ahoy Matey! My name is Gibbs.
I’m your trusted advisor to help you scale MySQL. I’m also a pirate. I know it sounds crazy. Who in their right mind would trust a Pirate? Well here’s my story: I used to have a career as a pirate sailing the open seas. Over the years, I served as the trusted sidekick to many a pirate captain, advising them on how to manage and distribute their growing bounty. Aye, what a life! Do I have stories! But, I am now a reformed pirate and as penance for any wrongdoings, I am offering my expertise to help land-dwellers like you manage your own growing data bounty. What’s my secret? Prepare for rapidly growing bounty by distributing it out across more than one place. That way nothing bad can bring your enterprise down. It’s called “sharding”. It’s not for everyone, and it may not solve all of your problems, but it helps you store large and rapidly growing data. Spreading out your bounty is a careful voyage that requires careful preparation. I’m here to help you find out if sharding is right for you? For Free!
That’s right: It’s Free. Really! No strings attached.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get started.
First, we need to take a gander at the hull of your ship to make sure it’s ready for the voyage to distribute your bounty. For that we will use my trusty Spyglass.
Spyglass is my database traffic analyzer. It runs on your app server and picks up all kinds of info about your queries, performance and database health. Then you submit the capture to me and I’ll apply my years of expertise and create a detailed report of my analysis. I’ll email you when your report is ready and you can view it here.
Not ready to put your ship in dry doc for inspection? Check out some of our other resources below.
