Advanced MariaDB and MySQL Performance Tuning and Optimization Services
One of our most popular services is tuning and optimization of MySQL and MariaDB database systems. We deliver vast database performance improvements to clients on a daily basis. Our most popular service is performance review and optimization, and we normally deliver this for a flat rate fee per database cluster. These methods include processes such as: Tweaking MSQL configuration files, writing more efficient database queries and MySQL configuration files. We can optimize queries along with MySQL query optimization guidelines for best practice efficiency. Looking at the MySQL user interface and other means such as InnoDB the (default storage engine) of optimising for stable and consistent performance.
Optimal configuration is often very workload specific, and there is no one set of optimal values – it can vary significantly depending on the MSQL server specification such as and the workload such as CPU and memory usage. One of the most common issues we encounter when assessing existing systems is pre-emptive over-tuning which typically results in ballooning memory requirements and performance degradation. Another is historical data on the database from old jobs processed a long time ago.
When you identify the performance driving factor for your database you can avoid over-provisioning and reduce costs by right-sizing your servers. In addition, it tells you whether moving data storage or adding server capacity will improve performance, and if so, by how much. Tuning a database for MySQL query performance optimization is not an easy task but, essential. It lowers unwanted task load, (causing a database to perform poorly) and allows for faster data retrieval.
You may also encounter errors that need to be corrected for example; “too many connections”. To overcome such errors increasing this value can possibly help or making sure there is enough memory. Adding memory can be a cost effective way of increasing performance, in particular on disk-bound workloads. Memory consumption formulas can also be used and can be found in tuning tools. This is best left to the experts however, as these tools to not take in to account the specifics of the system and give only generic guidelines.

MySQL is the most widely used open source relational database in the world. It is available for virtually all platforms and operating systems in use today. MySQL is currently owned by Oracle, through it’s purchase of Sun Microsystems. Our certified MySQL consulting team has decades of experience with providing expert MySQL consulting to nearly a hundred clients.
MariaDB is the fastest growing open source relation database, in terms of popularity. It is a fork of MySQL and has increasingly been replacing MySQL as the default variant in most Linux distributions. Our MariaDB specialists have a decade of experience with MariaDB and can help you with any MariaDB problem you may be facing.

“The work carried out was excellent. Ten times better than Percona.”
“Gordan from Shattered Silicon consulted into Transactis at a time they were in need of an expert consultant to extensively optimise their MySQL database during a key software product launch. Feedback from the client was excellent at all times and indeed he was able to provide services above and beyond their expectations. Personally Gordan was a pleasure to work and I would gladly work with him again.”
“Shattered Silicon are an absolute pleasure to work with. Their technical skills are amazing and I would rate their abilities on par with the very best in the world. It’s obvious their team goes out of their way to learn, test and benchmark the latest features and functionality. They are able to communicate complex technical issues clearly to both technical and business people. They deliver what they promise and have never missed a deadline.”
“The Consultant from Shattered Silicon is an extremely knowledgeable and capable System Administrator who was key to supporting legacy systems as well as implementing new ones. They were flexible and displayed a great attitude, and I would happily work with them again.“
I can’t recommend Shattered Silicon highly enough! They were quick to respond and understand what we needed, knew immediately what action we needed to take and helped us apply their suggestions. They are quick to offer very detailed advice, and have been a real pleasure to work with (and will continue to work with in the future). In terms of value for money the benefit we’ve gained in just a few hours of their time has been fantastic!
