Abstract: Database sharding is a technique to handle large data volumes efficiently by spreading data over a large number of machines. Sharding techniques are not only integral parts of NoSQL products, but also relevant for relational database servers if applications prefer standard relational database technology and also have to scale out with massive data. Sharding of relational databases is especially useful in a public cloud because of the pay-per-use model, which already includes licenses, and the fast provisioning of virtually unlimited servers. In this paper, we investigate relational database sharding thereby focussing in detail on one of the important aspects of cloud computing: the economical aspects. We discuss the difficulties of cost savings for database sharding and present some surprising findings on how to reduce costs.
