This meetup's topic is

"Scaling MySQL with Transparent Database Sharding", by Victoria Dudin of ScaleBase. Every relational database has some machine scaling limits. In this month's meeting Victoria will present the concept of Database Sharding - splitting the database to several independent databases, a solution proven highly effective for scaling MySQL. She will discuss the steps required for building a sharding solution, the implications and limitations of such solution, and will summarize by presenting ScaleBase solution to Database Sharding.
