At iSoft land we know that the strength of an application includes a carefully thought-out database design and implementation. The ability to build fast, reliable, and scalable Web sites and back-end applications comes from understanding the business problem and translating it into the best architecture, application and database design.
Our database design and development team has broad and deep experience with all of the major database technologies: MySQL, SQL Server, Analysis Server, LINQ and ORM. In addition, our team is well-versed in OLAP and cloud storage solutions.
Almost every system needs data storage. Depending on the application more than one form of data storage may be required. Amadeus Consulting has extensive experience in all the major methods of data storage. We have deployed database systems for everything from multi-processor, multi-machine clusters to cell phones.
Along with the below data storage platforms, Amadeus Consulting has experience in MySQL and Oracle databases, but our software development methodology is
agnostic to the data storage platform:
Scalable data design is not a new concept, but as Internet connectivity and world-wide users have grown the demands placed on Web applications continues to be stretched. Also important is ensuring that the architects stay abreast of the latest offering the product suite provides; for example understanding the pros and cons of using transparent data encryption (TDE) in SQL Server 2008.
One of the most important elements is protecting data integrity. Database design must also include the security requirements of the database and user permissions along with protection against SQL injection and other security attacks. The designer should understand the business needs and legal requirements of data encryption.
When selecting a partner to build your solution, be sure to ask the tough questions about database design and implementation for example:
- What bottlenecks do you perceive to be the challenges of the database design?
- How will you approach the database design for the business growth I am predicting?
- Help me understand data encryption and why or when I would need to use it?
