    Hello I read in a freelance job description the following:
    I have implemented php+mysql mostly with dummy data in order to learn queries, the db structure etc..,
    I mean what is specific about huge databases concerning structure, implementation, usage? I guess large databases also require data storage management, backup solutions etc..

    Thanks, iago

    I think the most important thing is to design your database well for the information it will contain. After that it is just the amount of storage space you have. What you can do is make a test application and find a way to get lots and lots of people to use it then see what happens. Another thing you could do is generate fake data using https://mockaroo.com/. There also have to be some books out there or large databases you could check out.

    I'm pretty sure that it is like that. Have you ever worked on such a large-scale project?
