ScaleBase Releases Database DBT2 Performance Results
Technology achieves unprecedented transaction speed for a MySQL database at a low cost
Boston, Mass., December 12, 2011 – ScaleBase, Inc. today announced the results of its MySQL database benchmark, based on the industry-standard DBT-2 test. ScaleBase has achieved an unmatched 180,000 Transactions per Minute – the highest result for a MySQL database – while running on an Amazon RDS environment. Cost per Transaction was reported to be 50 cents, which demonstrates the cost-effectiveness of the ScaleBase solution on the Amazon EC2 cloud. Full details of the benchmark can be found at http://www.scalebase.com/resources/performance/.
The ScaleBase Database Load Balancer is a packaged solution for transparently scaling MySQL databases. ScaleBase utilizes two techniques for scaling: read-write splitting and transparent sharding (a technique for massively scaling-out relational databases). The software enables MySQL to scale transparently, without forcing developers to change a single line of code or perform a long data migration process. The technology is ideally suited for any application in which scalability, performance and speed are critical, including: gaming, e-commerce, SaaS, machine-generated data, Web 2.0 and more.
“Some people feel that by using MySQL they stand the chance of limiting their performance options, however, these TPC-C results proves that this simply is no longer the case,” said Rob Levine, ScaleBase’s VP of Sales. “Without writing specialized code you can still get top performance – perhaps optimal performance – at an affordable rate, accounting for the requisite hardware and infrastructure resources. Especially in today’s economy, getting such great performance and optimizing every dollar spent can save companies substantial amounts of money.”
ScaleBase’s Database Load Balancer solution has been successfully used by numerous customers since its official release in August 2011.
