We were impressed by nClouds’ approach and execution on this project. They truly partnered with us as an extension of our team, sharing our goals, focusing on our success, and applying their deep data migration experience and expertise.”
Senior Software Engineer, Genability
Genability was an existing AWS customer and needed to improve the performance of their SaaS products. They wanted to migrate from the MySQL database engine on Amazon RDS to the Amazon Aurora database engine on Amazon RDS to tap Aurora’s superb performance, reliability, availability, and replica management. nClouds applied their migration expertise to help Genability design and execute the data migration.
Genability reached out to the AWS team for data migration help. AWS brought in nClouds, a Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network with AWS-certified Migration Competency, for a technical deep dive session with Genability. Based on nClouds’ experience and proposed migration process, Genability selected nClouds to help them perform the data migration.
Genability engaged with nClouds for help designing and implementing the data migration. Here is the step-by-step process that nClouds took to perform the migration from the MySQL database engine on Amazon RDS to the Amazon Aurora database engine on Amazon RDS:
Teaming with nClouds, Genability now has a database strategy with superb throughput performance, reliability, availability, and replication speed. The database migration was accomplished with zero read operations downtime. The project has yielded numerous benefits:
Amazon Aurora delivers five times the throughput performance of MySQL by tightly integrating the database engine with an SSD-based virtualized storage layer designed for database workloads, reducing writes to the storage system, minimizing lock contention, and eliminating delays created by database process threads.
With Amazon Aurora’s automatic storage scaling, cluster volumes automatically grow as the amount of data in the database increases, to a maximum size of 64 tebibytes (TiB), with no impact on database performance. Amazon Aurora increases availability by replicating data six ways across three Availability Zones so that a database cluster can tolerate a failure of an Availability Zone without any loss of data and only a brief interruption of service.
Amazon Aurora’s asynchronous replication speed is in milliseconds, while MySQL’s asynchronous replication speed takes seconds to complete. This makes a big difference for Genability’s energy products.
