How to design large-scale, database-driven applications

More than 90% of the bottlenecks in modern applications are attributed to databases. Very often, performance and scaling issues come from poorly designed databases.

1. How do you decide which database engine to use – RDBS or NoSQL database?
2. How do you make sure your application scales well with the current database engine?
3. How to identify bottlenecks in the database layer?
