Summary

This chapter has admittedly taken us off the beaten path as far as performance goes, but we hope you agree that it was worth it. We started off by looking at a nice lightweight framework for project management and how you can apply it to practically any project you work on. We highlighted that many of the performance-related issues we see in the real world could have been prevented with a little forethought and that applications tend to be much easier to scale if they have been well designed in the first place.

Then we took another slight detour to touch on backups and what sort of things you should be looking for from your backup solution. This section covered the differences between tactical and strategic backups, the pros and cons of incremental and full backups, and the importance of testing the restore process.
