For many of us who create, design, maintain, and run the daily operations of a high volume website know the issues that we face. The easy part for me is keeping the sites cross-browser compatible, and maintaining the most current CSS techniques. But where I can honestly say that I need help in (and would rather hand off the responsibility for) is making sure the mysql optimization is up to par with the demand of the site. So I have been on the hunt for someone to take the database portion of web tech to the next level, and out of my hands until I jump into that role more prominently.
Well, I found a mysql consulting firm that does just that. They offer mysql expert consulting service, and their advice is top notch. They will even take the MySQL responsibilities off of your hands, and maintain the database themselves.
And while that is great for the meantime, I found out that they also offer MySQL Training, as well as SysAdmin consulting! Now that is something I am going to invest in myself.
Here is what they list on their site as services they offer:
- Apache, Lighttpd, Ngninx, Squid
- Amazon Web Services (EC2, S3, SimpleDB, SQS), Nirvanix, RightScale, GoGrid, RackSpace
- Objective PHP (with templating), Perl, ASP Classic, Key/Value Store acceleration w/ BDB, Tokyo Cabinet, Kyoto Cabinet, Neo4j, Cassandra, MemcacheFS, MongoDB, FlockDB, Redis, DRBD
And many more options are available! So if I were you, my faithful tech geek readers, I would seriously consider checking them out! Then, we can begin to take that role of SysAdmin upon ourselves and get it right (…after we let them do it right in the first place for us)!
