What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

It seems hard to place this question on Stackoverflow to correct site:
Is the concept of a clustered index in a DB design sensical when using SSDs?

Reading comments people would place it on:

  • server fault
  • programmers
  • dba

and maybe even

  • superuser

I'm pretty sure it doesn't belong to stackoverflow. I voted for programmers. But where would it actually fit best?

important: This question got transferred to http://dba.stacexchange.com which atually seems to be the best option (although not available to close-rep moderators within the options that open).

+1 for coming here to ask instead of continuing to wander around the site "blind"! –  Pops Nov 28 '11 at 19:53

Programmers SE is for non-programming matters that are unique to the programming profession (i.e. "being a programmer," not "doing programming"). This question is about databases. I think a comment posted to the question sums it up best:

This is right up the alley of what DBAs do day-in-day-out. Database Administrators SE is chock full of extremely talented and experienced DBAs. They know the inner workings of the database engine like the back of their hands. – Shark 53 secs ago

Thanks for the answer. I agree although I close-voted for programmers because (A) there's no option for dba.se and (B) it seemed non-development question that is related to developers who decide on DB strategy... But yes DBA seems a much better fit. –  Robert Koritnik Nov 28 '11 at 19:56

Yeah, the lack of migration options can be annoying. You can always flag for a mod and say which site you think is right for migration; mods can migrate from anywhere to anywhere. –  Pops Nov 28 '11 at 20:03
