I am a DBA, a programmer, and a sysadmin. My title is Engineer and I work for one of the largest Domain and Hosting companies in the world. We are also one of the largest MySQL shops on the planet, as well as being responsible for PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Cassandra, Hadoop, Redis, Memcache, and even some MS SQL.
My primary work focus includes the data services provided to the world’s largest Authoritative DNS, the world’s largest PKI Certificate Authority, and the world’s largest CRITs threat mitigation database. This is in addition to a sizable hosting platform, e-commerce platform, and one of north America’s top ten email providers. We maintain one of the largest server-to-admin per product ratios in the industry and we provide end to end support while doing so. Our farm reaches into the millions of databases.
In the event of an emergency, your data is here, there, and over there. You may now move about the database.
Or if you feel like something more outer limits…
We control millions of databases. We control the hardware. We control the software. Do not attempt to adjust your scheme. We are watching.
