MySQL vs MariaDB: What is Differences?

MySQL and MariaDB are relational database management systems (RDBMS) best known for their mutual compatibility and their identical command and query syntaxes. In fact, MariaDB is a free and open source fork of MySQL that inherited many of that database’s characteristics.

Best MySQL DigitalOcean Performance – ScaleGrid vs. DigitalOcean Managed Databases

HTML to Markdown

MySQL is the all-time number one open source database in the world, and a staple in RDBMS space. DigitalOcean is quickly building its reputation as the developers cloud by providing an affordable, flexible and easy to use cloud platform for developers to work with. MySQL on DigitalOcean is a natural fit, but what’s the best way to deploy your cloud database? In this post, we are going to compare the top two providers, DigitalOcean Managed Databases for MySQL vs. ScaleGrid MySQL hosting on DigitalOcean.

At a glance – TLDR
ScaleGrid Blog - At a glance overview - 1st pointCompare Throughput
ScaleGrid averages almost 40% higher throughput over DigitalOcean for MySQL, with up to 46% higher throughput in write-intensive workloads. Read now

ScaleGrid Blog - At a glance overview - 2nd pointCompare Latency
On average, ScaleGrid achieves almost 30% lower latency over DigitalOcean for the same deployment configurations. Read now

ScaleGrid Blog - At a glance overview - 3rd pointCompare Pricing
ScaleGrid provides 30% more storage on average vs. DigitalOcean for MySQL at the same affordable price. Read now

MySQL DigitalOcean Performance Benchmark
In this benchmark, we compare equivalent plan sizes between ScaleGrid MySQL on DigitalOcean and DigitalOcean Managed Databases for MySQL. We are going to use a common, popular plan size using the below configurations for this performance benchmark:

As you can see above, ScaleGrid and DigitalOcean offer the same plan configurations across this plan size, apart from SSD where ScaleGrid provides over 20% more storage for the same price.

To ensure the most accurate results in our performance tests, we run the benchmark four times for each comparison to find the average performance across throughput and latency over read-intensive workloads, balanced workloads, and write-intensive workloads.

Throughput
In this benchmark, we measure MySQL throughput in terms of queries per second (QPS) to measure our query efficiency. To quickly summarize the results, we display read-intensive, write-intensive and balanced workload averages below for 150 threads for ScaleGrid vs. DigitalOcean MySQL:

CockroachDB vs (MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB & Cassandra)

An introduction to CockroachDB

If you are an entrepreneur or an enterprise IT leader, then you need to plan the technology stack for your software development project. You need to choose the right database for your project. If you are developing a heavy-duty transaction processing system or a high-demand analytics system, you will likely use an RDBMS (Relational Database Management System). You can choose one from several popular RDBMSs.

However, do you want an assurance that your data in an RDBMS will survive even large-scale failures in application systems and servers? This narrows the choice. This is where CockroachDB becomes important. This relatively new RDBMS offers a high degree of survivability to your data. In this article, we review CockroachDB and its features. We assess its pros and cons. Subsequently, we review its use cases. Finally, we compare CockroachDB with some of the popular databases. Read on.

MySQL vs MSSQL Server

career in software development is a continuous process of learning and staying updated on the latest technology stack. While software developers are focussed on learning technologies that are trending among enterprises, but often they face the dilemma of selection as they are exposed to similar kinds of technologies, for instance, which language to learn or which database to use, or which server to select.

One such common dilemma is whether to go for MySQL or MSSQL Server. Here, knowing the difference between MySQL and MS SQL Server, allows a developer to rightly assess the functionality, scalability, and data safety of the RDBMS in light of the software’s requirement.

Whether you are already into software development or aspiring to take a leap into this line of career, if you are learning databases, then this article will help you in understanding the difference between My SQL and MSSQL Server; both are two very popular relational database management system (RDBMS) based on structured query language.

One major difference between the two is that MySQL is open-source whereas SQL Server is a commercial product by Microsoft. However, there are many more technical differences between these two RDBMS that will be covered in this article.

Setting MySQL Configuration Variables – MySQL 5.7 vs MySQL 8.0

MySQL configuration variables are a set of server system variables used to configure the operation and behavior of the server. In this blog post, we will explain the differences in managing the configuration variables between MySQL 5.7 and MySQL 8.0.

We will explain three different ways for setting the configuration variables based on your use-case. Configuration variables that can be set at run time are called Dynamic variables and those that need a MySQL server restart to take effect are called Non-Dynamic variables.
