MySQL Benchmarking on m3.xlarge and m3.2xlarge Instances

by Flux7 Labs / September 23, 2014 / Benchmarking 0

In our last post about MySQL benchmarking, we benchmarked MySQL performance on an m3.large instance using both instance store and different types of Amazon Web Service’s (AWS) Elastic Block Store (EBS) storage.

In this post, we have extended the benchmarks on m3.xlarge and m3.2xlarge. We ran the benchmarks with and without optimizations. We explained the optimization and the rationale behind each of them in a previous post about using Sysbench for benchmarking.
