Creating a Time-Series Database in MySQL


Relational databases aren’t very well suited to time-series data in some ways, but MySQL is powerful and flexible. At VividCortex, we have found that it’s a good storage engine to support a large-scale, high-velocity time-series database in the AWS cloud.

In this webinar, Baron Schwartz, our CEO and Founder discusses our unique time-series data requirements. He explains the following:

  • How we built a solution using MySQL and additional components such as Redis
  • Why we needed more than just MySQL to meet the requirements
  • The good and bad aspects of our architecture
  • Performance statistics
  • Thoughts for the future of our time-series data architecture

You will leave the talk with a greater understanding of MySQL’s capabilities related to time-series data. Submit the form below to access a recording of the webinar.
