RECENT BIG DATA QUOTE:

"There are many techniques for partitioning a database, all under the heading of “sharding.” But regardless of which technique you are referring to, the purpose is basically the same – spread your data out in a manner that allows parallel processing across multiple servers, allowing your database to scale with load. Done correctly, the results can be pretty amazing, frankly even surprising some of us on the dbShards team. In short, sharding really works."
