RedeHost are one of Brazil's largest cloud computing and web hosting providers, with more than 60,000 customers and 52,000 web sites running on its infrastructure.
As the company grew, Redehost needed to automate operations, such as system monitoring, making the operations team more proactive in solving problems. Redehost also sought to improve server uptime, robustness, and availability, especially during backup windows, when performance would often dip.
To address the needs of the business, Redehost migrated from the community edition of MySQL to MySQL Enterprise Edition (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/), which has delivered a host of benefits:
- Pro-active database management and monitoring using MySQL Enterprise Monitor (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/monitor.html), enabling Redehost to fulfil customer SLAs. Using the Query Analyzer, Redehost were able to more rapidly identify slow queries, improving customer support
- Quadrupled backup speed with MySQL Enterprise Backup (http://www.mysql.com/products/enterprise/backup.html), leading to faster data recovery and improved system availability
- Reduced DBA overhead by 50% due to the improved support capabilities offered by MySQL Enterprise Edition.
- Enabled infrastructure consolidation, avoiding unnecessary energy costs and premature hardware acquisition
Also, take a look at the recently updated MySQL in the Cloud whitepaper (http://www.mysql.com/why-mysql/white-papers/mysql_wp_choice_for_cloud.php) for the latest developments that are making it even simpler and more efficient to develop and deploy new services with MySQL in the cloud
