Accelerating MySQL in Open Source Hyperscale Systems
Nearly 20 years after MySQL entered the market, the legacy of open source systems it inspired, along with its LAMP counterparts, has finally taken hold. In recent years, more companies than ever are taking advantage of open source software and hardware – especially in hyperscale environments. Performance gains achieved through recent innovations have helped prove open source can beat closed, proprietary systems when it comes to real world performance.
This session will share how MySQL performance, like that delivered by Percona Server, can be improved through open source hardware and new APIs like atomic writes, which allows applications to directly address flash as memory, bypassing disk-era code. Attendees will learn how these two components are being used in the hyperscale to accelerate the apps that run our world.
