Performance Advantages of Running an Oracle® MySQL Replicated Database on Oracle Linux with Oracle’s Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe Card

This document demonstrates how to increase MySQL database performance on the master server while simultaneously reducing replication lag time on the slave server by implementing th e PCIe ® flash based Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe card . This guide demonstrates optimization of MySQL master and slave servers running Oracle Linux with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel. By offering high performance with low latency and minimal CPU bu rden, the F80 PCIe Card can help maximize transactional I/O performance for applications in an Oracle Linux environment like online transaction processing (OLTP), data warehousing (DW), and data mining. By delivering the I/O performance of hundreds or even thousands of traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), the F80 PCIe Card is designed to improve user satisfaction and productivity by enabling applications that use the MySQL database to meet challenging service - level agreements (SLAs) for response times and t hroughput.
