Introduction to Database and Server Performance
Go Up to Database and Server Performance
One of the most important requirements for a database as part of your application is to store and retrieve data as quickly as possible. Like any software development technique, there is always more than one method to implement a given specified software solution, and it takes knowledge and experience to choose the design that results in the most efficient operation and the highest performance.
Each project offers unique challenges and requires specific solutions. The suggestions in this chapter augment your own software engineering discipline, which should include careful analysis, testing, and experimentation to implement the best design for your specific project.
