This white paper describes the performance of MariaDB version 10.0.19 on IBM Power Systems servers featuring the new IBM POWER8 processor technology. The target audience is users and system integrators interested in using Linux on Power and MariaDB.
The performance results in this paper demonstrate how the MariaDB application and IBM® Power SystemsTM perform using the sysbench 0.5 benchmark suite. This white paper details the results on the IBM Power® System S822L server running MariaDB 10.0.19 on RHEV/RHEL with IBM PowerKVM 2.1.1 and sysbench 0.5 as the benchmark test suite. The innovative design of the IBM POWER8TM processor technology is for very demanding, data-intensive applications making it well-suited for MariaDB customers.
