Choosing Storage Systems for MySQL

Utilizing Hardware
25 April 11:00am - 11:50am @ Ballroom G

In this session you'll learn about the three primary storage technologies commonly used for MySQL: RAID arrays of conventional disks, solid-state (flash) drives, and enterprise SAN/NAS storage. You'll learn the distinctive strengths and weaknesses of each for particular access paths such as random and sequential I/O or writes versus reads, and what types of workloads in MySQL demand high performance for those operations. As a result you'll be able to choose the appropriate type of storage for your server's workload.
