It didn’t take long before someone MySQL KV-only engine and included it in its distribution:
What is so special about it:
- It provides NOSQL-like requests to data stored in XtraDB. So in the same time you can access your data in SQL and NOSQL ways. This is first open source solution which allows that.
- It has persistent storage (XtraDB is persistent)
- It handles really high load. In my tests using 2 dedicated web servers ( using perl clients) I reached 200,000 req/sec and the clients were real bottleneck, while Percona Server was busy only 5-7%.
By NOSQL they mean completely overpassing the SQL engine and using a simple key-value API.
