Лучшие альтернативные MySQL движки для Magento – Percona, Mariadb

- Magento советы

У MySQL существует несколько альтернатив, на которые вы в любой момент можете переключиться.  Лучшие из них это MariaDB и Percona. MariaDB является ответвлением MySQL, которое развивается при участии всего сообщества по лицензии GNU GPL. Создателями решения являются оригинальные разработчики  MySQL. Основные цели MariaDB включают в себя поддержание высокой совместимости с MySQL, обеспечение возможности “drop-in” замены с библиотекой двоичной эквивалентности и сопоставление с командами и API MySQL. В свою очередь Percona Server является еще одной бесплатной альтернативой MySQL. Решение обладает высокой масштабируемостью, улучшенной производительностью, нехарактерными для базового движка особенностями и всеми необходимыми инструментами. Кроме того, Percona полагается на алгоритмы самонастройки и обладает поддержкой передового мощного железа. Далее мы расскажем о том, когда стоит переходить на альтернативы MySQL, такие как MariaDB и Percona.
