Addressing common challenges when scaling out MySQL horizontally

When we explore strategies to scale our MySQL-based database layer, we realize that there are many different options. As opposed to proprietary solutions, open-source products nourish themselves from their communities and novel architectures or enhanced versions are generated, often incorporating other open source technologies. MySQL is not an exception.

Other players build completely different engines aiming to mitigate some of MySQL well-known weaknesses, but still support its wire protocol, with the challenge of sacrificing as little compatibility as possible.

In this white paper, we briefly discuss the scale-up vs scale-out dilemma, to then review the different scale-out strategies. We are also going to go over some of the most common MySQL architectures and products with horizontal scaling in mind.

Finally, we will share some guidelines to …

dbdeployer community - Part 1: TiDB

After a conference, when I take stock of what I have learned, I usually realise that the best achievements are the result of interacting with other attendees during the breaks, rather than simply listening to the lectures. It might be because I follow closely the blogosphere and thus the lectures have few surprises in store for me, or perhaps because many geeks take the conference as an excuse to refresh dormant friendships, catch up with technical gossip, and ask their friends some questions that were too sensitive to be discussed over Twitter and have been waiting for a chance of an in-person meeting to see the light of the day.

I surely had some of such questions, and I took advantage of the conference to ask them. As it often happens, I got satisfactory …

On my Favorite FOSDEM 2019 MySQL, MariaDB and Friends Devroom Talks

This year I had not only spoken about MySQL bugs reporting at FOSDEM, but spent almost the entire day listening at MySQL, MariaDB and Friends Devroom. I missed only one talk, on ProxySQL, (to get some water, drink a bottle of famous Belgian beer and chat with my former colleague in MySQL support team, Geert, whom I had not seen for a decade). So, for the first time out of my 4 FOSDEM visits I've got a first hand impression about the entire set of talks in the devroom that I want to share today, while I still remember my feelings.

Most of the talks have both slides and videos …

A Quick Look into TiDB Performance on a Single Server

TiDB is an open-source distributed database developed by PingCAP. This is a very interesting project as it is can be used as a MySQL drop-in replacement: it implements MySQL protocol, and basically emulates MySQL. PingCAP defines TiDB is as a “one-stop data warehouse for both OLTP (Online Transactional Processing) and OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) workloads”. In this blog post I have decided to see how TiDB performs on a single server compared to MySQL for both OLTP and OLAP workload. Please note, this benchmark is very limited in scope: we are only testing TiDB and MySQL on a single server – TiDB is a distributed database out of the box.

Short version: TiDB supports parallel query execution for selects and can utilize many more CPU cores – MySQL is limited to a single CPU core for a single select query. For the higher-end hardware – ec2 …

With the hype and growth in interest in late 2017, Coinbase has had to scale. They gave an excellent talk at MongoDB World, titled MongoDB & Crypto Mania (the video is worth a watch), and they’ve also written a blog post, …

What’s Next for SQL Databases?

In this blog, I’ll go over my thoughts on what we can expect in the world of SQL databases.

After reading Baron’s prediction on databases, here:

https://www.xaprb.com/blog/defining-moments-in-database-history/

I want to provide my own view on what’s coming up next for SQL databases. I think we live in interesting times, when we can see the beginning of the next-generation of RDBMSs.

There are defining characteristics of such databases:

  1. Auto-scaling. The ability to add and use resources depending on the current load and database size. This is done transparently for users and DBAs.
  2. Auto-healing. The automatic handling of node …
