Topology

Description

Xpand Peformance

  • Delivers maximum throughput and lowest latency.

  • Uses MaxScale as a transparent database proxy to monitor node health and route queries to Xpand nodes.

  • Xpand stores data in a distributed manner and executes queries using parallel query evaluation.

Xpand Storage Engine

  • Leverages Xpand's benefits and maximizes compatibility with MariaDB Enterprise Server (ES).

  • Uses MaxScale as a transparent database proxy to monitor node health and route queries to ES nodes.

  • ES nodes store non-Xpand tables and interact with Xpand tables using the Xpand Storage Engine.

  • Xpand stores data for Xpand tables in a distributed manner and executes queries using parallel query evaluation.
