Clustrix Claims Better Database Performance than Amazon Aurora on AWS


February 19, 2016 | TheVARGuy

Clustrix is hoping to beat Amazon at its own database game. This week, the company announced that its ClustrixDB scale-out database can outperform Amazon Aurora on Amazon’s own AWS environment.

Aurora and ClustrixDB are both next-generation, cloud-oriented databases designed to deliver major performance and scalability improvements over traditional MySQL storage. But Clustrix says its platform is better suited for the enterprise because it “can achieve performance beyond 10x that of Aurora,” according to a benchmarking announcement the company made this week.
