Oracle claims 70X speed-up with MySQL Cluster 7.2

New cluster capable of a billion queries a minute

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Oracle has released its latest GPL update to its MySQL cluster, with huge speed boosts promised, better support for web users added, and new support for NoSQL integration.

MySQL Cluster 7.2 will be able to process a billion queries per minute and 110 million updates per minute, Oracle claims, giving users a 70X increase in performance on complex queries. The company also claims 99.999 per cent reliability.

For those web businesses fond of NoSQL, there’s now an optional integration tool with the new cluster via a new memcached API for faster reading and writing. This allows complex queries via MySQL to be combined with the speed and flexibility of NoSQL, Oracle says. Short-term data can be stored in memcached server spaces, and the more frequently accessed data can be handled by MySQL.

"MySQL Cluster 7.2 demonstrates Oracle's investment in further strengthening MySQL's position as the leading Web database," said Tomas Ulin, vice president of MySQL Engineering at Oracle in a statement. "The performance and flexibility enhancements in MySQL Cluster 7.2 provide users with a solid foundation for their mission-critical Web workloads, blending the best of SQL and NoSQL technologies to reduce risk, cost and complexity."

For admins, MySQL Cluster Manager release version 1.1.4 has been pushed out as well, to give IT managers more options in how their databases are managed, and allow greater automation of common tasks. ®
