AnalyticDB for MySQL is a cloud native enterprise-class data warehousing service that integrates database and big data technologies. This topic describes the advantages of AnalyticDB for MySQL over other data warehouses or big data platforms in the industry.

Cloud native elasticity
AnalyticDB for MySQL uses a cloud native technical architecture to separate storage from computing and allows computing and storage resources to be dynamically scaled on demand. This minimizes costs and resolves bottlenecks in computing and storage resources caused by business growth and fluctuations.
High performance
AnalyticDB for MySQL uses the new-generation ultra-large-scale massively parallel processing (MPP) and directed acyclic graph (DAG) fusion engine. It uses the row-and-column hybrid storage technology, automatic indexing, and intelligent optimizer to query and compute large amounts of data within milliseconds or seconds. Complex SQL queries are 10 times faster than those in traditional relational databases. AnalyticDB for MySQL supports real-time data writes on an ultra-large scale in compliance with the Raft consensus protocol. For scenarios that require high concurrency and throughput, you can scale out clusters. For example, the disk space can be increased from gigabytes to hundreds of petabytes. Clusters can be scaled out to process tens of millions transactions per second.
Ease of use
AnalyticDB for MySQL is highly compatible with MySQL protocols and the SQL:92, SQL:99, and SQL:2003 standards and supports standard SQL statements, common BI tools, and extract, transform, and load (ETL) tool platforms. AnalyticDB for MySQL is designed to simplify real-time digitalized operations for enterprises.
High cost-effectiveness
AnalyticDB for MySQL supports features such as online scaling of computing resources, time-specific elasticity, and tiered storage of cold and hot data. AnalyticDB for MySQL charges you based on the actual amount of storage space occupied, which greatly reduces storage costs. AnalyticDB for MySQL supports the pay-as-you-go and subscription billing methods. You can use a billing method that suits your needs.
High availability and reliability
AnalyticDB for MySQL can automatically detect faults, remove and rebuild replicas, and restore services within seconds with an availability higher than 99.95%. It stores data in three replicas and backs up full and incremental data on a regular basis. It can provide you with the data reliability that is required in the finance industry.
