MySQLConf 09: Extreme Performance and SmartScaling MySQL with Storage Class Memory Servers

Posted in Conferences, Databases on April 28, 2009

Storage class memory (SCM) fundamentally redefines the traditional memory and storage hierarchy by combining the performance of DRAM with the capacity of disks. Using SCM to enable fast, random, and low-latency access to large ‘in-memory’ databases, Virident’s GreenCloud servers offer dramatic improvements in performance, scalability, and energy and cost efficiency for MySQL in the data center.
