SQL Database Development Services (SQL, MySQL, and MariaDB )

Most Scorchsoft projects involve SQL database development. SQL database design, development, optimisation support. We have experience configuring databases capable of storing billions of records. 

When building an application, you need a database. It's like the brain of your system, receiving requests from the user and sending back the right response in the form of data, making your whole system function. But, there are a few different types of databases that you can choose from. At Scorchsoft, we primarily pick from two options; MySQL and MariaDB. When building your application, we'll make sure to select the right choice for your needs, and these two usually hit the mark. 


Relational Database

A relational database sorts your data into linkable tables, known as related tables, based on similar data. Both MySQL and MariaDB are relational databases, which comes with a range of benefits. It's a simple but effective model that's quick to create so that we can develop a fully-functioning application in less time. Data is organised logically and is easy to fetch, with one or more tables retrieved from a single query and no chance of repeat data.


Scalable With AWS RDS Load Balancing

We can link your MySQL or MariaDB database with Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Relational Database Service (RDS). This cloud-based service makes it simple to set up a scalable database that will shift and adapt as your needs change. Using RDS, we can also optimise your database for load balancing. Load balancing is the process of evenly distributing queries to the multiple database servers, providing a single endpoint for applications to connect to without overloading the server. You'll have reduced downtime, improved performance, and a much more scalable database.


Complex Queries

Both databases can carry out complex queries, letting users access billions of records and a wealth of data efficiently. These complex queries search the database using several factors and can read data across multiple tables. With these capabilities, you can access more complex data, and your database is instantly more effective.


Partition Database Tables

We can partition your data into smaller tables when using MySQL or MariaDB databases. Partitioning databases involves splitting large tables into smaller ones, either vertically or horizontally. These methods have slightly different results, and we'll choose which to use based on the data you're using, but both will improve your database's performance. By partitioning database tables, you can run queries that only need a small section of data much faster as there's much less data to work through.


Supported by Back End Frameworks

To create a fully functioning application, you need all of your components to work together. MySQL and MariaDB are compatible with a wide range of back end frameworks, giving you more flexibility and options when it comes to the software you choose.


Stood the Test of Time

MySQL was first released in 1995 and is still one of the most popular choices for a database. In technology terms, that's unprecedented. Technology moves at super-fast speeds, and for a database to have stood the test of time for that long is a sign of how reliable and effective it is. There have been other databases made since, but none has pushed MySQL off its pedestal. MariaDB is a variant of the MySQL database, created in 2009 when the original developer left the company. The developer created MariaDB so that no matter what changes the new leadership created to MySQL, MariaDB would always be close to the original database. Both databases have a client list that would make most companies swoon, including Uber, Twitter, and Netflix (MySQL), along with Walmart, Alibaba, and Deutsche Bank (MariaDB).


SQL Engine For the Heavy Lifting

A database with an SQL engine is one that you can rely on. SQL (also known as a structured query language) is the part of the framework that communicates with the database, and the SQL can do almost every process. It's user-friendly, reliable, and our team is very familiar with it. Because SQL can do so much of the heavy lifting quickly and efficiently, you can expect incredible performance and super-fast speeds.
