Sharding is a technique used to horizontally partition database operations and scale the core layers of blockchain environments. 

     The process of Sharding implementation works by separating the database into smaller sections, more easily manageable sections with the idea of improving performance and reducing the amount of time it take to process a query and its responses. The nodes within the networks are only responsible for the activity that happens within their sections, thereby making the network as a whole able communicate for efficiently.

     Shardings greatest challenge the maintenance of global state consensus, how can all shards be aware of what goes on in other shards.
