Christol Consultants Group has the experience to build your database right, the first time.

One of the largest issues facing companies today is the explosive growth in the quantity of data being managed and the number of users who need to access it.

Scalalability is best dealt with from the beginning. A well designed architecture will allow a system to scale smoothly as it grows. Over time requirements may change, and if a system was not designed with scalability in mind, then after a period of growth it may no longer meet expectations. Then the changes start; bandaid solutions are put in to work around issues, and in the end the system is unmaintainable. In this situation Christol can use its expertise to help you refactor your system to improve its scalability and maintainability.

Christol will provide the right system the right way, using the same techniques that are used by large internet sites like Facebook, Flickr, and Wikipedia:

Requirement and user story analysis: to fully understand what data you need, how it will be used, and how long it needs to be kept

Watch your data grow with you

Custom designs: to take into account your transactional and reporting needs, to ensure your data always gives you reliable answers

Intelligent partitioning and multi-server sharding: to ensure your system is horizontally scalable

Replication and load balancing technologies: integrated to spread the load around

Industry standard technologies: use technologies like DRBD, Heartbeat, and federated databases to ensure high availability

The final result is a high performance, scalable system that will grow with your company.
