Question on sharding

Primary tabs

Prior to IRIS, using ECP to share databases under heavy I/O load has known latency issues (in our environment), which pretty much restricted using shared database with relatively static or slow-changing data. In IRIS, will sharding mitigate the latency issue and allow any table to be shared?

Sharding will allow you to split your data between physically different servers with each own storage. So, you may get faster simultaneous read/write of data. At the same time with ECP configuration, your application servers will get direct access to the sharding node which holds data. 

So, if it is correctly configured you should get some profit from it, for sure.
