MySQL Outperforms Sybase and Other DBMS Packages

By Brian Solomon, TMCnet Web Editor


In recent tests of power efficiency and throughput, the MySQL Database Management System delivered superior results compared to other popular DBMS packages, most notably Sybase (News - Alert) and PostgreSQL, according to a MySQL announcement today.
As an example, MySQL delivered 107 to 328 percent better power and 101 to 299 percent more throughput efficiency as compared to Sybase. The tests were run on an AMD (News - Alert) Opteron based server by Neal Nelson & Associates, an independent computer performance consulting firm.
Nelson’s Database Power Efficiency Benchmark measures power and throughput efficiency for transaction processing workloads at a variety of user load levels. It runs the same workloads on identical server platforms with varies DBMS software packages, in order to determine the differences in power and throughput consumption caused by the DBMS software.
In order to show that significant differences exist, and that they can be measured by the new benchmark, Nelson has released preliminary test results for MySQL, Sybase, PostgreSQL and DISAM96.
