Overview of this Lecture / week

As our database environments grow, you will end up finding yourself having to work in a distributed environment. This will involve lots of database and servers, connected together and sharing data. In this lecture we will look at the main distributed database concepts and some of the data and database design considerations. This leads into data and database sharding and data integration.
