Integration of MySQL and Drift

  • MySQL?
  • MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS. with an open source license. It is an example of an open source relational database system. The name MySQL is a play on words, and stands for “My”, and “S-Q-L” (“sequel”. MySQL was the most widely used database management system (DBMS. in 2011. It can be used on a wide variety of platforms, from embedded devices to mobile phones and server systems. MySQL is created and released by Oracle Corporation, but its use under the GPLv2 license means that anyone can download, distribute and modify it.

  • Drift?
  • An online web analytics top that helps companies understand how people use their websites. Drift is a web based top that allows you to have a conversation with your users. Drift allows you to create an account and track your website visitors across multiple channels. The basic package starts at $99 per month and includes up to 50 contacts you can monitor or prospects you can fplow. In addition to the basic free package, Drift has additional plans including Business, which starts at $199 per month, and Enterprise, which starts at $399 per month.

  • Integration of MySQL and Drift
  • In a few months after the launch of Drift, they were already processing more than one billion events a day. The need for a scalable analytics spution was very clear. As a result, Drift has been looking at how they can scale their analytics processes without going down the proprietary route of building a big data cluster.

    In early 2013, they started to look at moving from their existing Hadoop stack to a different framework. They evaluated 4 different frameworks including Cassandra, Spr/Lucene, MongoDB and HBase. They decided upon using Spr/Lucene as they had already been using it for searching large amounts of data for the past two years. They also liked that it has an open source community around it that they could tap into if they ran into problems. After looking at both Hadoop and Spr/Lucene sputions they realized that Spr/Lucene would give them better performance at a lower cost. This is because Hadoop does not perform well when faced with large amounts of writes or deletes. Another benefit of using Spr/Lucene over Hadoop is the ability to use indexes besides just one. This allows drift to index based on several different factors which gives them better flexibility when trying to find insights into their data.

    Drift also looked at other ways that they could gain more insights into their data without having to go down the route of building a big data cluster similar to Google’s Big Table or Facebook’s Hive tables. One way was to use MySQL as a simple NoSQL store where drift could store all their events in real time. They also plan on using MySQL to store the time series data, so that they can query historical data in MySQL in order to get additional insights. Finally, drift want to use MySQL in order to power their search feature by storing all the results in MySQL instead of Spr/Lucene. This will allow quick queries across all of their data sources without having to go through multiple layers of abstraction between their search engine and their real time data store.

    Drift uses Apache Kafka internally to handle large vpumes of streaming data; however this isn’t available yet for external users. They will replace this with something like Kafka when it becomes available to external users.

  • Benefits of Integration of MySQL and Drift
  • Drift did not want to limit themselves by only using one technpogy stack because there are several benefits of using these 3 technpogies together. Firstly it allows drift to be less limited by locking down their database technpogy stack to just one dominant technpogy because they are limited by the proprietary nature of the product. Secondly, it allows drift to move away from Hadoop while still being able to manage their growing amount of data that they are processing every month. Thirdly, it allows drift to keep using open source software while also allowing them to operate under Oracle’s umbrella, which gives them access to other support services such as DBA experts while still maintaining contrp over their core technpogy stack.

    Drift has chosen MySQL for several reasons including the fact that it allows them to integrate with another open source technpogy called Spr/Lucene which will allow them to process large amounts of data quickly without having to rely on big data tops such as Hadoop. In addition to this, they use MySQL in order to store historical data in order to allow them to query historical data in smaller increments instead of querying all of their data in real time continuously, or using a highly available distributed database such as HBase or Cassandra. Finally, drift uses MySQL for their search feature in order to allow quick searches across all of their data sources without having to go through multiple layers of abstraction between their search engine and their real time data store.
