How to prepare for scaling up database and wordpress site

I am interested in learning about how to scale a wordpress based social media type blog as it outgrows a single droplet. What options are there now for handling the database growth. Should I consider cloud hosting of the DB or using the DO managed database - is a large single site database a bad idea versus multiple hosts of segmented databases?
