Once upon a time, organizations hosted their database servers on-premises. Later, they moved to data centers, and now the same servers are often found in the major cloud platforms.
Most of the new deployment and development of database-oriented applications are on the cloud. AWS, MS Azure, and GCP are prevalent hosting applications and databases. While the fundamental principles of monitoring remain the same when deployment is in the cloud or on- premises, some areas need more attention on the cloud-based MySQL.
In this whitepaper, we will discuss the major areas to focus on when one has to monitor the performance of MySQL on the cloud. We will focus on monitoring critical metrics along with the automatic alerting mechanism. After reading this whitepaper, DBAs and businesses will better understand how to drive efficiency in their investments.
