MySQL® is a widely used, open source relational database management system (RDBMS) which is an excellent solution for many applications, including web-scale applications. However, its architecture has limitations when it comes to big data analytics.As data volumes continue to increase exponentially, businesses continue to demand accurate real-time data analysis. That is extremely difficult to achieve with MySQL alone. Many MySQL users have leveraged additional open source and commercial solutions to enhance MySQL’s capabilities and add in-memory computing functionality. However, these point solutions lack the full functionality of an in-memory computing platform like Apache® Ignite™. This white paper will help you understand how Apache Ignite differs from these point solutions. You'll learn how incorporating Apache Ignite into your architecture can empower dramatically faster analytics and transactions when augmenting your current MySQL infrastructure.
