28 Feb 2014 Accelerating MySQL on Oracle Linux with Flash [35175]
Leveraging Oracle's Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe card

Chris Kawalek writes, "Our spotlight this week is on a brand new white paper that can help you get the most out of MySQL running on Oracle Linux, with the help of Oracle's Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe card. To give you an idea of the Oracle Linux part of this, here is an except from the paper's intro:..."

"Oracle Linux with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) was chosen for this study for several key reasons including its upstream support for the latest hardware relevant to modern data center operations, and SSD support and performance features such as SSD detect. In addition, MySQL database workloads benefit from the platform's deep integration with the solution stack, optimizations resulting from industry collaborations and enhancements in the UEK."
