How does Facebook manage 1800 MySQL Servers with just 3 DBAs?

Easy: not only are their DBAs smart but, thanks to MySQL Enterprise Platinum they have "Virtual DBA Assistants" that help them manage servers in a scale out environment. The MySQL Enterprise Monitor proactively monitors all MySQL servers using a set of MySQL provided expert advisors, to identify and alert DBAs of problems, security vulnerabilities and tuning opportunities so they can be acted upon well in advance of a problem or outage occurring.

The consultative support in MySQL Enterprise Platinum means that Facebook DBAs can also talk to MySQL Engineers for advice on how to properly design and tune MySQL servers, schemas, queries, and replication set-ups to maximize performance and availability. It really is like having more staff but without the cost of hiring. So MySQL not only helps Facebook scale their platform technical, we help them scale their DBA staff and finances at the same time.

So are you a startup ? Do you want access to those same engineers and the same resources to scale and grow without trawling around through contacts to get the right person, then find out they havent got the skills ?
