Data Security – Keeping your business and data safe
Whether we are working onsite or working remotely, we take security very seriously.

Both whilst working on your database/s and after, our expertise will help keep your data secure and protected.
Maintaining databases correctly and efficiently is very important. Using database experts with the right expertise to continually manage your database will maximise efficiency and have huge benefits.
Accidental DBA’s do not have their primary role or job description focused on SQL Server administration, but they end up having to maintain one or more SQL Server instances for some reason. Due a lack of the necessary knowledge and expertise, this poor management leads to performance degradation, poor optimization and ultimately, more time and costs for the business.
Having our team of professional database administrators manage the ongoing MySQL work means that the “Accidental DBA” is then free to work on what they are most productive at and the Database is in the capable hands of the real experts.
For example: if you are an ecommerce business and your website administrator is spending time working on a database with only limited expertise leading to poor optimization and performance loss, instead of adding new website functionality and getting product to the market, where his real skillset applies and he can support the business the most.
Using the world’s most popular open source database by Oracle, MySQL Database Service is a platform that delivers fully managed database services that enable developers to build and deploy secure, cloud-native applications quickly. With MDS, you get a fully integrated, high-performance, in-memory query accelerator known as HeatWave.
Customers can now run sophisticated analytics directly against their operational databases without integrating and moving data around a separate analytics database, which can be time consuming and expensive for any business.
Open Source Database
An open source database stores vital data in software that can be controlled by the organisation. An open source database enables users to build a system tailored to their business needs and requirements. In addition to being free, it can also be shared. Users can modify the source code to suit their preferences.
In order to analyse data from a growing number of new applications at a lower cost, open source database solutions are becoming increasingly popular in the business sector.
MySQL performance can be accelerated by orders of magnitude when using HeatWave for data analytics and mixed workloads. Built, managed, and supported entirely by the OCI and MySQL engineering teams, MDS Service is optimized for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
Autopilot uses 9 new machine learning capabilities, improving the scalability of Heatwave Services.
Autopilot supercharges MySQL Service with HeatWave to unprecedented performance, scalability, automation, and security. As a result, it recoups extraordinary amounts of time leading to much greater productivity, much faster time-actionable-insights, and much faster time-to-market.
THE LAMP PLATFORM
Website database applications and technologies are frequently developed using the Linux operating system, the Apache web server, the database management system, and the Perl or PHP scripting language. These components are sometimes referred to as LAMP or LAMP Stack platform.
Among development and deployment platforms, Linux is most common. You can, however, run all the tools on other operating systems.
Perl and PHP
As users have increasingly turned to PHP for developing dynamic web pages, the P in LAMP originally stood for Perl, rather than PHP. PHP programming language is one of the most efficient and clean ways to retrieve and display data. Perl is possibly still a better choice if you need to do heavy data processing after MySQL returns data.
Although a wide variety of languages can be used to accomplish this task; most of them have the necessary interfaces for both web servers and database engines.

“The work carried out was excellent. Ten times better than Percona.”
“Gordan from Shattered Silicon consulted into Transactis at a time they were in need of an expert consultant to extensively optimise their MySQL database during a key software product launch. Feedback from the client was excellent at all times and indeed he was able to provide services above and beyond their expectations. Personally Gordan was a pleasure to work and I would gladly work with him again.”
“Shattered Silicon are an absolute pleasure to work with. Their technical skills are amazing and I would rate their abilities on par with the very best in the world. It’s obvious their team goes out of their way to learn, test and benchmark the latest features and functionality. They are able to communicate complex technical issues clearly to both technical and business people. They deliver what they promise and have never missed a deadline.”
“The Consultant from Shattered Silicon is an extremely knowledgeable and capable System Administrator who was key to supporting legacy systems as well as implementing new ones. They were flexible and displayed a great attitude, and I would happily work with them again.“
I can’t recommend Shattered Silicon highly enough! They were quick to respond and understand what we needed, knew immediately what action we needed to take and helped us apply their suggestions. They are quick to offer very detailed advice, and have been a real pleasure to work with (and will continue to work with in the future). In terms of value for money the benefit we’ve gained in just a few hours of their time has been fantastic!
