Hi cur.

These are empty phrases. Could you phrase what you need, in your own words?

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

So what would you like to know? Please ask some questions that one can answer. As we don't know your situation, we cannot answer "best practice"-questions.

Of course if the admin is absent, someone else will have access to a password database like keepass or to a printed document, usually kept in a safe.
