    v23 v24  
    1212 * '''Sharding''', where rows within a single model are spread across multiple databases for improved write performance. 
    1313 * '''Moving models between databases''' - e.g. for converting from MySQL to Postgres, or for shuffling items between shards. 
     14 * '''Transparently handling database failure''' - many large applications like to handle unavailable databases in their application code, switching to another slave if the first one is unavailable for example. See [http://blog.digg.com/?p=213 Digg Database Architecture] for a high profile example.
