MySQL Delivers 50% Lower Database Costs as NetHawk Develops Network Monitoring Solutions

With a mission to enhance the quality and user experience of converged communication networks, NetHawk provides state-of-the-art software-based network testing and monitoring tools and services for telecoms and VoIP equipment manufacturers and operators.

To diagnose network issues in real-time, NetHawk needed their database to deliver the highest levels of availability and throughput with the lowest response times, be massively scalable to handle ever increasing network traffic and subscriber volumes, and be flexible so that it could be partitioned to store and retrieve data over varying periods of time

NetHawk evaluated proprietary database products, but found MySQL delivered higher levels of performance at 50% lower cost, while meeting stringent availability requirements
