MySQL Health Check: Review and optimize your database to its full potential

With MySQL Health Check, you get the peace of mind that your databases are running smoothly as they should.

If you are running a database, then you need to do a MySQL Health Check regularly.

The MySQL Health Check gives you a technical review of your databases and presents you recommendations for optimizing your deployments.  This benefits you in such a way that you are able to maximize scalability, performance, security and availability.  In short, you can get more out of your MySQL database.

So what are the things that you need to do in a MySQL Health check?

Architecture: Technicians and MySQL experts would review your current database architecture and recommend some ways optimize your design and architecture.

Configuration: The technician would also take a look at your MySQL configuration to see if there are any changes that you need to make depending on the applications that you run.

Performance: A MySQL Health Check would also take a look at the queries you have and SQL code changes would be suggested in order to improve performance.  It also monitors memory usage, including hit ratios, cache and other processes and helps you improve on it by recommending changes.

Disaster recovery and business continuity: The technicians will review your backup configuration to see what needs to be improved for better backup and restore performance.

Security: The technicians will be scouring your MySQL deployment for security vulnerabilities and endorse changes that would close up these vulnerabilities, as well as recommend tighter configurations.  Moreover, you will be briefed on the audit capabilities included in MySQL Enterprise.

Authentication: You will also learn how to use MySQL user authentication along with PAM, Active Directory, LDAP and other authentications models.

Roadmap: The technicians will also take time to discuss your MySQL Roadmap.
