Set up a MySQL IaaS NDB cluster with 4 nodes on Azure Linux

  Introduction   In an earlier blog post, I wrote about setting up a MySQL single server instance on Azure Linux (Ubuntu) Virtual Machine. We also did some performance bench-marking around READ-s with lots of joins. However, most enterprises would be interested in exploring a full-fledged MySQL cluster as opposed to just a single server….


MySQL performance benchmark on Azure Linux: OS disk (ext4) vs RAID 0 array (xfs)

  Introduction   In an earlier blog post, I wrote about how we can configure an Azure Linux (Ubuntu) VM with a RAID 0 array of data disks and mount XFS on the array. The goal of doing this was gaining disk I/O, hence performance. In order to substantiate this claim, I am following up…


Set up Azure Ubuntu VM with XFS on RAID

  Summary: If you are running applications like MySQL / MongoDB / Cassandra / Kafka or any other custom application that accesses data disk(s) on an Azure Linux Virtual Machine frequently for storage or Disk I/O, you may consider using a RAID array of data disks to improve performance by increasing concurrency of reads/writes.
