MySQL - the most popular open-source database in production today but notoriously difficult to scale horizontally. Two years ago Box was running its entire website off a single MySQL database, traffic was growing aggressively, we needed a solution. I'll discuss how we transitioned our stack to a fully sharded MySQL architecture, with no downtime, while serving 2 billion queries per day. I'll focus on challenges of migrating a live website and lessons learned.
