comment Architectural Help Needed - MySQL or NoSQL for a table with 54 million records
If you don't mind, I have a few questions (built large MySQL servers, but not at this scale): Are you doing this on a MySQL server? Single server, or a cluster? Can you share a bit about your hardware specs?

comment Why don't databases create their own indexes automatically?
I would say that comparing BigTable (and its derivates, such as Cassandra, HBase, etc) to RDBMS solutions is comparing apples to oranges - BigTable and derivates are more like gigantic key-value or columnar stores, and the row key is inherently an index.

comment 3 Databases, Best Replication Setup?
I also would like to add that these databases are already existent, and I've read somewhere the possibility of key-collisions/error in this kind of setup... Would using GUIDs instead of integer IDs help with this - that should prevent key collisions?
