Can cloud storage help MySQL database?

Databases are in a transition period with analysts like Gartner reporting by 2022 nearly 75% of all databases will be deployed or migrated to the cloud. The largest open source database management system, MySQL, leads with better than 30% market share. Whether you are a start-up, ISV, or large corporation, choosing the right cloud storage for your MySQL database can make or break your cloud experience. MySQL databases require specific enterprise-grade feature sets to improve ROI and lower TCO.



Peak latency, IOP, and throughput performance is required to perform complex business operations such as searching, indexing, and updating data records.



Redundancy and high availability configurations protect against device failures to help keep your database and applications online.



Data corruption, external threats, or accidental data loss are all reasons why the right protection is needed for your data.



Application development workflows benefit from rapid iteration and parallel testing to innovate and reduce costs.



Service failure shouldn’t result in data loss, even in the cloud. You need storage that protects against data loss caused by unplanned service outages.



Increase database efficiency and automate common tasks to reduce risk caused by human error and to improve operational productivity.
