Building A Time-Series Database on MySQL


Relational databases aren’t very well suited to time-series data in some ways, but MySQL is powerful and flexible. At VividCortex, we have found that it’s a good storage engine to support a large-scale, high-velocity time-series database in the AWS cloud.

In this session, Baron Schwartz will dicuss VividCortex's unique time-series data requirements and implementation, including:

  •     How we built a solution using MySQL and additional components such as Redis
  •     Why we needed more than just MySQL to meet the requirements
  •     The good and bad aspects of our architecture
  •     Performance statistics
  •     Thoughts for the future of our time-series data architecture

You will leave the talk with a greater understanding of MySQL’s capabilities related to time-series data.
