Cloud Forward Episode 1: Cloud-Native Database - PolarDB | Auto Scaling

In this episode, we will dive deep into the search for a database that is as elastic and scalable as cloud computing.

Can we optimize our database to maximize its performance?

Can we diagnose and deal with various unexpected database performance issues quickly?

Can we meet business needs with minimal resource cost?

Welcome to this episode of Cloud Forward.

Today, we are going to talk about how a database can be elastic and scalable, just like cloud computing itself.

In real-life database operation and maintenance, database resources are often exhausted due to unexpected changes in traffic.

Consequently, enterprises aim to be more agile and adaptive for fast business growth, which leads them to search for a database with high elasticity and scalability. These are exactly what a cloud-native database is made to accomplish.

Alibaba Cloud PolarDB is a cloud-native relational database with extreme elasticity and an auto-scaling feature.

When CPU utilization increases and reaches a specific threshold, the PolarDB cluster reads this and will perform a scale-out or scale-up accordingly.

When the traffic subsides and the CPU utilization falls back to normal, the PolarDB cluster performs a scale-in or scale-down.
