Oracle HeatWave accelerates MySQL

October 26, 2021 - Research V158

Nucleus found that organizations adopting the Oracle MySQL Database Service with the HeatWave accelerator and MySQL Autopilot reduced overall data infrastructure spend by at least 30 percent. This cost reduction is driven by the HeatWave accelerator’s differentiated time and resource efficiency for online analytical processing (OLAP) and mixed online transactional/analytical processing (OLTP/OLAP) tasks, with one customer interviewed by Nucleus noting over 200 times faster processing of their most complex query with further speed improvements at scale. Because processing in cloud database services is charged per CPU-hour, these speed improvements directly translate into cost savings, with one customer interviewed by Nucleus reducing data processing spend by 50-60 percent relative to Amazon Aurora.
