This solution combines the value of MySQL with InnoDB Clustering for a highly available solution with the advanced storage capabilities of PowerStore T. The Dell EMC PowerStore T family of storage arrays provides performance, scalability, and storage efficiency. PowerStore T is an excellent choice for Oracle MySQL workloads because of its data-centric, intelligent, and adaptable infrastructure that transforms and mobilizes both traditional and modern workloads.
This white paper is based on work by the Dell Technologies Oracle solutions team utilizing a PowerStore 1000T storage array. The objectives that our Oracle MySQL with PowerStore T storage validation tests addressed are:
The team designed these storage validation tests to show that the wide range of PowerStore T models helps control costs and reduce storage management complexity. For customers to cost-effectively manage data growth, the PowerStore T family must provide a consistent experience across all the enterprise features demanded by MySQL environments. We also show that dev/test environments that use the Oracle MySQL InnoDB Cluster system are easy to configure and operate on all PowerStore T models including the 1000T.
