With the inevitable amount of customers your startup will be raking in, has your team considered the elasticity of your database solutions? SQL is a popular choice by many dev teams. However, relational databases have proven to bottle-neck as the records grow! Even NoSQL solutions such as MongoDB have a filesize limitation. With live data being updated from you to your loyal users, your solution must be responsive. You cannot afford to have a slow product! As your user platform grows across the states, more and more users will be accessing and uploading new records creating a lagging user experience. Good problems to have! Your solution must balance transaction requests.
Fault Tolerance and Availability are two important factors in deciding your storage solution. Clustering involves configuring multiple databases that share the same information so that if one goes down, users are migrated over to the most available database. They notice no difference in performance. This is crucial and must be configured correctly so that your customers can grow to trust and depend on your services.
Does your web service store plain text data or sensitive business passwords and financial information? Does your smartphone app upload files that need to be fetched instantly? The type of database you need depends on the type of data you need to store and retrieve. You could say that your database solution is data sensitive. In another example if you choose the wrong database solution, your video streaming website could result in a painful buffering experience for your end users.
Our team handles those specs for you so you can rest easily while thinking up your next best feature.
Be smart. Every business must have a Data Recovery Plan. Even the best node-clustering database solution goes the extra mile to back up all data.
