As the DBA for [login to view URL], I managed a large database server cluster during its first year of explosive growth. I was also the DBA for [login to view URL] and I've migrated databases from SQL Server to MySQL and also have some experience migrating medium-sized sites to Amazon AWS. If you have a site that is growing rapidly and need to get the most out of your database hardware, I can help.
