Seattle AWS Meetup Explores Scaling Transactional Workloads on AWS

Clustrix-sponsored event looks at strengths and weaknesses of MySQL replacements

San Francisco, CA – Jun 29, 2016 – Clustrix, the MySQL drop-in replacement scale-out RDBMS that’s built for high-concurrency, low-latency workloads, is sponsoring the upcoming AWS Meetup in Seattle, Washington. This event takes place on Monday, July 11 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Surf Incubator, located at 999 Third Ave, 7th floor (networking starts at 5:30 p.m., and free parking is available in the Wells Fargo building).

Choosing the right MySQL-compatible Scaling Strategy for the Job

Enterprises with high transactional workloads on MySQL eventually run into scaling issues. There are a number of scaling strategies, from scale-up to master/slave to sharding and beyond, which can add more capacity to a MySQL workload. However, each have trade-offs, so knowing your workload and knowing your ‘must-have’ requirements is essential.

Join us for an exploration of MySQL-compatible scaling strategies, as well as a technical exploration of another option: ClustrixDB is a MySQL-compliant RDBMS which scales-out linearly both writes and reads with each added DB node. We’ll also show some benchmark numbers for Sysbench and YCSB on AWS.

The event will feature the insights of Gil Colunga, Senior Engineer/Architect and technical lead for eCommerce Operational Intelligence at, whose team built an architecture for ingesting telemetry streams in AWS that allows elastic scaling without manual intervention.
