Scalability and Innovation
The business value of this infrastructure is discussed in this month’s Harvard Business Review (HBR) in a detailed article about Google innovation called “Reverse Engineering Google’s Innovation Machine”.
Google has spent billions of dollars creating its Internet-based operating platform and developing proprietary technology that allows the company to rapidly develop and roll out new services of its own or its partners’ devising.
However, Google not only has infrastructure that allows it to add new on-line services quicker and easier than its competitors, it also has a management strategy that encourages staff to innovate by including it in job descriptions:
Much of what the company does is rooted in its legendary IT infrastructure, but technology and strategy at Google are inseparable and mutually permeable – making it hard to say whether technology is the DNS of its strategy or the other way around.
What would it mean for your organization if there were sufficient infrastructure resources to allow everyone to experiment with new ideas?

Optimizing the Slowest Thing
The elements of the performance analysis are:
-MySQL configuration analysis
-Strategies for database reorganization and optimization
-How to perform database optimization without taking your application down
-Database size optimization (reclaiming unused disk space)
-Long-running query analysis
CodeFutures has already developed a tool to gather the necessary information about a specific MySQL deployment. At the moment, the data analysis is manual. The tool will eventually evolve to include features providing immediate performance and configuration feedback. However, full analysis of the data requires someone with significant MySQL optimization experience – so there will always be a limit to what a tool can do.
