Gaming is a highly dynamic environment. It can be very difficult to predict performance demands. MySQL Cluster¹s on-line scalability provides the assurances we need to meet future requirements and we can use MySQL Cluster Manager to automate scaling and cluster administration - which makes DevOps very happy!
MySQL has not required a lot of administration. After it's been tuned, configured, and optimized for size on initial setup, we have very low administrative costs. I can scale and add more customers without adding DBAs. This has had a big, positive impact on our business.
Having MySQL come on site was great, because we were able to optimize our database server more quickly than we otherwise could have. In addition to that, several of our staff got hands-on training on systems that they need to know the most about.

Using MySQL with partitioning, we took our product from a maximum of 3,500 records per second to 22,000 records per second for a 6x performance gain. We’re now at 10x performance from pre-partitioning levels and still haven’t reached the max simply because we haven’t had enough test machines. Our overall experience with MySQL has been extremely positive. MySQL has well-designed processes that provide the capabilities we need, including partitioning. And MySQL just runs and runs – our customers have never had to reboot.
