Full-time MySQL DBA needed

A former member
Post #: 1

We are looking for a full-time MySQL DBA. The environment is a big one with terrabytes of data over 10 database servers with heavy use of the MyISAM storage engine.

Contact me if this sounds interesting to you, and we can discuss in more detail.

Hi Dean,

I wonder what type of data it stores if it needs MyISAM engine?

Does it use MyISAM tables for historical reasons or it is required due to
the data particular features?

For such a significant data size InnoDB looks like better fit.

What type of application it is?
