Scaling MySQL Deployments With Percona Server and Virident tachIOn Drives

Until recently, MySQL and InnoDB were unable to take advantage of high-performance hardware, particularly storage systems. Large-scale deployments made heavy use of so-called horizontal scaling with a technique called sharding — partitioning data across many small-to-midsize servers. Today, MySQL — especially Percona's enhanced version of MySQL, Percona Server with XtraDB — is capable of exercising much more powerful servers and storage systems. As a result, server consolidation and vertical scaling is a viable, and often much more economical, path to high performance with MySQL. This white paper explains how to configure servers for high performance with MySQL and the Virident tachIOn PCIe solid-state storage device.
