Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced that CASPUR, a non-profit, consortium of Italian universities focused on scientific supercomputing and innovative technologies, has subscribed to Sun's MySQL Enterpriseâ„¢ database service.

The Rome-based CASPUR  consortium has approximately 120 members, counting employees and scientific advisors. It employs a cutting-edge technical infrastructure and specialized applications, making it the most important supercomputing centre in Central-Southern Italy.

CASPUR wanted to provide its users with a system of high-performance and highly reliabile services for accessing biological databases in the sectors of genomics, proteomics, microarrays and next-generation sequencing. The new structure will allow the researchers to have better access to scientific applications and data via an extremely efficient and scalable integrated system – all based on Web services, which also allow remote access.

CASPUR selected MySQLâ„¢ because it is a top database choice for the Bioinformatics industry, preferred by both application developers and the computational biology research community, thanks to its simplicity and high-performance. To better manage their use of the open source database, CASPUR employs a MySQL Enterprise subscription that allows them to monitor application reliability -- and improve query performance through the service's MySQL Query Analyzer. The proven solution allows efficient scalability from two to ten master servers, and from ten to 100 back-end slaves, which provide front-end Web services, able to manage the dataflow from a supercomputing system based on a 2048 core cluster system.

"CASPUR relies on MySQL Enterprise because it perfectly matches our supercomputing application," said Nico Sanna, Senior Technology Manager Divisione HPC Chimica e Biologia Computazionale Consorzio CASPUR. "MySQL Enterprise's advanced Query Analyzer allows more effective monitoring and optimization of our database queries."

Finland-based NetHawk announced it has selected Sun Microsystems’ MySQL Embedded Database Server software in order to meet its stringent requirements for application speed, scalability and 24x7 availability – at half the cost of other databases.

NetHawk is a leading provider of telecommunications network analyzers and simulators. With a mission to enhance the quality and user experience of converged 2G, 3G and LTE networks, NetHawk provides software-based network testing and monitoring tools and services for telecoms and VoIP equipment manufacturers and operators.

As NetHawk began to develop its new 24/7 multi-technology network monitoring system – NetHawk EYE, they evaluated a range of potential database solutions run on commodity hardware. By purchasing MySQL OEM licenses from Sun, NetHawk had the flexibility to embed and ship MySQL as part of NetHawk EYE network monitoring system at a 50% lower database cost. Moreover, NetHawk makes extensive use of the MySQL Enterprise Monitor and Query Analyzer during its development phase in order to reduce Database Administrator and developer effort in managing the database and optimizing queries.

"MySQL handles 20,000 write operations per second from the NetHawk EYE network monitoring system and generates up to 8 Tera-Bytes of data comprising 10-20 billion rows per month, all accessed by multiple client systems in the operator’s Operations & Maintenance Center," said Markus Weiland, Product Manager for NetHawk EYE. "MySQL’s efficient partitioning of tables and indexes has enabled our product to better manage and perform with these massive data sets."

NetHawk EYE’s databases provide a range of critical capabilities for both the efficient storage and retrieval of network data from the converged networks. To diagnose network issues in real-time, NetHawk needed EYE database to deliver the highest levels of availability and throughput, with the lowest response times. They also required the database to be massively scalable in order to handle ever-increasing network traffic and subscriber volumes – and to be flexible that it could be structured to store and retrieve data over varying periods of time for trend analysis by its operators.

"We're delighted that one of the leading manufacturers of testing tools for telecom networks is running on MySQL Embedded Server," said Matti Rantanen, MySQL Nordic Telecoms Sales Manager at Sun Microsystems. "By powering NetHawk’s flagship product with MySQL, the subscriber experience is improved through high reliability and performance which is key in the highly competitive communications industry."

Joyent Launches Virtual Appliance for MySQL -- Sets New Speed Benchmark for Database in the Cloud

(3 votes, average: 4.00 out of 5)
Joyent, the leading vendor in Enterprise-Class Cloud Computing, announced today that it is taking the proven performance and reliability of Sun Microsystems' MySQL database to a whole new level by offering optimizations to the Joyent Cloud for MySQL. Joyent and Sun’s database group have teamed up to create Virtual Appliance templates for MySQL.

Joyent's Virtual Appliance for MySQL is configured to maximize the open source database's performance on Joyent's powerful, secure and stable virtualization technology. Performance benchmarks (www.joyent.com/mysql) demonstrate that Joyent's Virtual Appliance for MySQL can deliver 3 times the number of Transactions per Second than comparable deployments of XEN-based clouds, such as Amazon's EC2.

"Running Read-Only tests, our internal benchmarks show that a 1GB Virtual Appliance for MySQL in the Joyent cloud can perform 1,245 transactions per second with 8 threads," said Jason Hoffman, Joyent CTO and Founder. "A more expensive 7.5 GB large instance on Amazon EC2 only manages 425 transactions per second with the same 8 threads."

Joyent has made it easy to launch a Virtual Appliance for MySQL as a single instance or as part of a Web-scale architecture.

"MySQL is pre-installed and optimized on the Joyent Cloud," said Hoffman. "From the minute you get your login credentials, you are ready to go: deployment could not be easier. Dual-Master or Master-Slave configurations will also soon be available as pre-defined architectures."

 

The Joyent Virtual Appliance for MySQL is available based on a typical cloud model. Users can scale up and down when they need to -- and pay for only the infrastructure they use. There are no contracts to lock-in users. Additionally, the Joyent Virtual Appliance for MySQL Enterprise is fully supported by the MySQL database experts at Sun.

"MySQL is the most-used database in today’s Cloud environments," said Rich Nigro, MySQL Managed Hosting Business Manager, Sun Microsystems. "We are delighted to see that Joyent is making this dedicated MySQL offering available to users of the popular Joyent Cloud."

The Joyent Cloud has many customers benefiting from MySQL, and there are several case studies of how the optimized implementation has driven application performance, operational stability and value.

"Context Optional provides scalable solutions for brand marketing across social networks like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter," said Rafi Jacoby, Director of Engineering at Context Optional. "We've built and deployed viral applications for Kraft, Toyota, McDonald's, MTV/Viacom, and many other Fortune 500 brands using MySQL running on the Joyent Cloud. We've been impressed with performance and uptime, with several databases having run more than a billion queries with no downtime."
