How does one scale an application to billions of Queries per day? What is done at Rockyou is database Sharding, or Federation data. Today with mySQL Rockyou is able to do 40K selects / second on less then 8 shards and scale linearly across all of their applications.
Former Database Architect of Friendster, Flickr and current Architect at Rockyou. I’m an expert at scaling all application teirs but with a special emphasis in data layout, millisecond data retrieval on multi-terabyte data stores all using mySQL.
