MySQL Performance

It’s a shame banks aren’t as open as Twitter and PayPal šŸ™‚ itnews articles on PayPal offer a glimpse on the size/performance of the MySQL installations at both Twitter and now PayPal.

Twitter uses MySQL as a “building block,” he said, “as a core of features we understand and functionality we trust”, upon which his team usesĀ GizzardĀ for sharding and replication,Ā InnoDBĀ as its storage system, and a NoSQL database calledĀ FlockDB.
