Shopify's engineering team explains how VividCortex has helped them achieve complete visibility into their database tier, diagnose performance problems, and assist developers in deploying code at incredible volume, with confidence.
We deploy new software 20 times a day sometimes. After Black Friday, after the code freeze, we deployed 86 times in the same day. Each one of these new deploys could bring new queries. Tracking those queries without VividCortex would take 24 hours. It could be too late. We could be down for 24 hours until we come up with a solution. Real-time monitoring is the only way to keep our wheels running. — Sergio Roysen, MySQL DBA Team Lead
