Maxed out servers

Are your servers running out of RAM and starting to page to disk or temp tables? If you see the servers maxing out for extended periods of time, or it happens frequently throughout the day, it's a key indicator that MySQL can't keep up with your growth. Adding hardware is the quick fix, but it's also very expensive and isn't a long-term solution. If organizations used a scale-out approach, data can be replicated across nodes, and as transactions increase in size and amount, workload is shifted to other nodes within the database.

The data management landscape is complex and quickly evolving. Nothing underscores this evolution more than the emergence of 'super apps' — or applications that process millions of user interactions per second. Factor in Big Data and the cloud, and it becomes clear that organizations are in need of a new generation of databases that can perform better and scale faster.

If you're unsure of whether or not your organization is ready for a scale-out database, take a look at this slideshow from scale-out SQL startup Clustrix for five signs you may be outgrowing MySQL.
