Getting the Best MySQL Performance in Your Products: Part IV, Partitioning

Friday, December 14, at 9.00 am Pacific Time

We're adding Partitioning to our extremely popular "Getting the Best MySQL Performance in Your Products" webinar series. Partitioning can greatly increase the performance of your queries, especially when doing full table scans over large tables. Partitioning is also an excellent way to manage very large tables. It's one of the best ways to build higher performance into your product's embedded or bundled MySQL, and particularly for hardware-constrained appliances and devices.

Fernando, thanks for the comment! We developed MySQL 5.6 precisely to address the need of next generation web applications, deployed either on-premise or in the cloud. It delivers enhanced linear scalability, flexible NoSQL access, better transactional throughput and more...More information at:

Additionally, MySQL Cluster is a scalable, real-time, ACID-compliant database, combining 5 x 9s availability and open source technology. It scales horizontally on commodity hardware accessed via SQL and NoSQL APIs:

Finally, I suggest you have a look at the presentations from Twitter and PayPal at MySQL Connect. They describe why they chose to rely on MySQL/MySQL Cluster to scale their operations:
