Databases now and in the future
Posted on 2011-09-17
I'm working on a project that needs a solid base for future growth.
It's currently build in PHP with MySQL, its a very simple registration system in itself.
But we foresee large transactional load for the system, like a few million users doing one or more transactions per day.
The details of the transactions are not complex more like 40 or something items on a form.
Now what i know is that my current setup is not able to handle this profile and i need some information based on research or experience
How can a NoSQL database help me in this respect if at all?
How can a NewSQL Database help me in this respect if at all?
If I stay with the current solution how should i go about this?
I ask this because it looks like a NoSQL db is very attractive for my setup, every form could be a single complete item in the db instead of having it linked throughout the table set that marks a relational db. But i just have been looking on the surface and would like to have a few more informed opinions on this topic.
