Xeround Cloud Database vs. Amazon RDS
Original Document: http://site.xeround.com/mysql-cloud-db-overview/xeround-vs-amazon-rds-benchmark/
Xeround’s Cloud Database was compared to Amazon RDS. We chose Amazon RDS as it is currently the closest MySQL Database-as-a-Service offering (yet – as you can see from our feature comparison – Amazon RDS is not a truly elastic cloud database). The tests were conducted using DBT-2, a standard database benchmark application. Other tests using DBT-2 were run with emphasis on the OLTP part of the test. All tests were conducted on Amazon RDS live commercial service.
Both Xeround MySQL Cloud Database and Amazon RDS’ database were loaded with exactly the same data, which was generated by the DBT-2 test program in transactional operation mode. The overall loaded data size was ~15GB of raw data.
Amazon RDS for MySQL Large DB instance, 7.5 GB memory, 4 ECUs (2 virtual cores with 2 ECUs each), 64-bit platform, High I/O Capacity No high availability, no failover, no replication
Xeround MySQL Clooud Database Standard virtual instance (that scales as needed) with 2 replicas per record High availability, failover and synchronous replication
Throughput: Standard DBT-2
DBT-2 New Order Transactions per Minute (NOTPM) A transaction consists of a few dozens of SQL statements, including queries, updates, inserts and deletions.
Analysis of the standard DBT-2 benchmark test
As shown, RDS performs better when dealing with small numbers of concurrent users. However, as the number of concurrent users increases, RDS’ performance decreases substantially, whereas Xeround’s performance increases as the number of concurrent users grows, significantly exceeding the performance of RDS. This case clearly demonstrates the high level of parallelism achieved by Xeround’s technology, with stable performance that does not drop significantly when serving more concurrent users. There’s also a linear increase in Xeround’s latency as the number of concurrent users grows, whereas RDS’s latency increases exponentially, and quickly reaches the “timeout” point. Xeround has a much broader bandwidth compared to RDS, and can easily deal with a larger number of users. If needed, Xeround can scale-out even more (not demonstrated in this test) to deal with more users and provide better performance.
Heavy Duty OLTP Test
This test was based on DBT-2, and included the following transactions:
New-order Payment Order-status
Xeround’s MySQL cloud database performs much better than RDS across the entire range of concurrent client numbers. Xeround throughput reaches its peak at 30 users and remains stable at 7000 NOTPM. RDS’ performance peaks at around 15 concurrent clients, and then drops to 1700 NOTPM. RDS’ latency increases exponentially as more concurrent clients are added, reaching 14.5 sec per single transaction with 240 concurrent users. Xeround’s latency increases linearly, and remains relatively low at 1.4 sec/transaction with 240 concurrent users.
Xeround’s MySQL cloud database offers a leap forward compared to “old school” database technology, offering significantly better handling of large numbers of concurrent users, and very stable performance and latency under high loads. Xeround Cloud Database offers many additional features, which were not covered in this benchmark test, including the following:
Automatic scaling High availability Pay per use pricing model Ease of use Zero maintenance …and much more.
When considering all the benefits of a true cloud database, coupled with competitive pricing, Xeround is the preferred choice of developers and businesses for their database application requirements in the cloud.
