_P style="MARGIN: 0px"_ _B_Get Started Scaling Your Database Infrastructure for High-Volume Big Data Applications_/B_ _/P_ _BLOCKQUOTE_ _P style="MARGIN: 0px"_“Understanding Big Data Scalability presents the fundamentals of scaling databases from a single node to large clusters. It provides a practical explanation of what ‘Big Data’ systems are, and fundamental issues to consider when optimizing for performance and scalability. Cory draws on many years of experience to explain issues involved in working with data sets that can no longer be handled with single, monolithic relational databases.... His approach is particularly relevant now that relational data models are making a comeback via SQL interfaces to popular NoSQL databases and Hadoop distributions.... This book should be especially useful to database practitioners new to scaling databases beyond traditional single node deployments.”_/P_ _I_ _P style="MARGIN: 0px"_—Brian O’Krafka, software architect_/I_ _/P_ _/BLOCKQUOTE_ _P style="MARGIN: 0px"_ _I_ _B_ _I_Understanding Big Data Scalability_/I_ _/B_ _/I_ presents a solid foundation for scaling Big Data infrastructure and helps you address each crucial factor associated with optimizing performance in scalable and dynamic Big Data clusters. _/P_ _P style="MARGIN: 0px"_ _/P_ _P style="MARGIN: 0px"_Database expert Cory Isaacson offers practical, actionable insights for every technical professional who must scale a database tier for high-volume applications.
