Database Migration From MySQL to NoSQL

DB Migration

CASE OVERVIEW.

Deciding amongst NoSQL databases (schema-less ) and RDBMS (strong-schema ) is never an either-or choice. Our client decided to tackle the issues with their big data strategy by complementing their MySQL servers with mongoDB, creating a better system which provided better scalability, availability and scalability than any of the two systems individually can.

CHALLENGES.

Our client handles a huge amount of new data every day, with a constant need for maintaining a data-warehouse for better and faster analytics. MySQL sufficiently handled the daily traffic and requests, but due to the structured and partially inflexible nature of any huge MySQL DB warehousing had become a headache.

We needed a flexible and robust data warehousing and data analytics solution given the clients complex data analytics needs.

APPROACH.

Pegasus One decided upon a hybrid setup – where the MySQL DB took care of the current persistent data, which it was capable enough to handle, and the historical data was migrated over to NoSQL for data-warehousing and analytics.

This gave our client the flexibility to have a flexible, fast and robust data warehouse with all the benefits that come along with NoSQL, while still enjoying the ease and compatibility of MySQL for their operational data.

RESULTS.

BETTER ANALYTICS

NoSQL data warehouse resulted in an efficient and reliable analytics engine

EASIER MAINTENANCE

Upgradation and maintenance of persistent MySQL databases become simple as it did not affect the vast amount of warehoused data

HIGH PERFORMANCE

Speed and flexibility of NoSQL led to a fast and scalable Data Warehouse with better data analytics capabilities

VALUE.

NoSQL solutions are especially great for data warehousing needs, as demonstrated by this case study. Highlighting a few of the features that make NoSQL DB great for data warehousing are:

  • Flexibility, Rich Query Language
  • Sharding (Easy scaling)
  • High Performance
  • High Availability
  • Wide storage engine support.
