MyRocks is a MySQL storage engine that integrates with RocksDB, a Facebook open source project. It provides improved flash storage performance through efficiencies in reading, writing and storing data. Optimized for fast, low-latency storage, it’s ideal for today’s high-volume, write-intensive applications such as data aggregation, IoT, transaction logging, system monitoring, payment processing and billing systems. MyRocks requires less SSD storage space, provides more storage endurance, and ensures better IO capacity.
The MyRocks engine does not have separate binary releases. It is available as part of Percona Server for MySQL.
“The efficiency improvements in MyRocks make it a great complement to InnoDB. Including it in Percona Server for MySQL makes it possible for the MySQL community to use it. I am thrilled that we worked with Percona to make this possible.”
