Facebook Tech Talk: MySQL at Scale

In case you haven’t seen it, the Facebook team held a Tech Talk on Monday focusing on MySQL and HBase at Scale.

You can view the recording here.

Facebook relies on MySQL for it users database, handling users interactions such as likes, shares, status updates, events, notifications…etc, and is running massive operations, especially considering (as Domas Mituzas from the database performance team mentioned) the time and scope of “social” data. Domas shared some pretty impressive numbers including:

  • 800M active monthly users

  • 500M active daily users

  • 350M mobile users

  • 7M apps and web sites integrated via platform

  • 60M queries per second

  • 4M row changes per second

The team also discussed why they believe MySQL is a better choice for them than other NoSQL solutions, and shared a lot of great information about what they’re working on to scale MySQL to the levels they need.

Thanks to the Facebook team for sharing!
