MYSQL SMARTPOOL

What is MySQL SmartPool v2?

Grid uses a multi-tenant database hosting system featuring guaranteed memory resources and automatic scaling (bursting). Media Temple has radically re-architected multi-tenant MySQL hosting technology, allowing the SmartPool to function more intelligently than any previous generation of hosted MySQL.

  • All-SSD storage.

    Our MySQL SmartPool storage drives are entirely SSD-based, allowing many times more IOPS than a comparable spinning drive. That eliminates storage bottlenecks, enabling higher speed and performance than other shared database hosting systems.

  • One-click upgrades.

    When your website's traffic demands exceed the limits of the SmartPool, an upgrade to the MySQL GridContainer can be made directly inside the Account Center. Our system handles all aspects of the upgrade seamlessly with zero migration burdens.

  • Database bursting.

    When the SmartPool recognizes sudden spikes in database traffic it automatically allocates a single-tenant MySQL Container. This allows your databases to grow beyond the guaranteed SmartPool resources. This unique feature helps customers survive temporary traffic bursts resulting from press releases, mass blog coverage, Reddit, etc.
