MySQL Cluster: Scaling to Billion Database Queries per Minute

A session at NoSQL matters 2012

  • Bernd Ocklin

Tuesday 29th May, 2012

11:50am to 12:35pm (CET)

MySQL Cluster is the high availability, low latency storage engine with autosharding and real-time capabilities, used worldwide to ensure that hundreds of millions of mobile phone users are always reachable.

This mature and proven technology is gaining rapid adoption in the web due to its simple scaling model, performance/and integrated HA that are needed to ensure that web services can evolve rapidly.

MySQL Cluster has many attributes that make it ideal for new generations of dynamic, highly scalable applications, including:

  • Auto-sharding across commodity hardware for write-scalability
  • Cross-data center geographic synchronous and asynchronous replication with eventual consistency
  • Online scaling and schema evolution
  • SQL and NoSQL interfaces

This session looks at the existing NoSQL access methods for MySQL as well as the latest developments for the MySQL Cluster storage engine. You can get the best of both worlds – persistence, consistency, rich queries, high availability, scalability and simple, flexible APIs and schemas for agile development.

Learn how cluster as a globally distributed database engine is used in mobile phone networks, how web services profit from its scaleable fully event driven architecture.
