Database Performance Upgrades #featurefriday 1

Posted by Hans Scharler,

With over 20,000 active streams of “Internet of Things” data, the servers that make up ThingSpeak.com are humming.  We recently made extensive upgrades to the database system that stores all of data generated by things from all around the world.

“We switched to SSD drives for all of our database servers,” said Lee Lawlor, Lead Engineer of ThingSpeak. “All of the upgrades are live and available to the entire ThingSpeak Community!”

The improvements decreased response time dramatically and improved large data set retrieval by ten times.
