The Intelligent Database Proxy
“Heimdall Data’s SQL caching software was easy to install and provided an immediate increase in performance. But their analytic tools gave us insight what was really happening with our queries allowing us to optimize our code. Once optimized, not only was the raw SQL faster but the number of cache hits increased giving us even more performance. If you are serious about performance, you need to start with Heimdall.”
“We first tested Pgpool and very quickly realized that it would require extensive work to update, maintain and scale. When we began testing with Heimdall Data we were able to see huge improvements, about 5-7x what original performance tests had shown. We learned all about the rules engine, explain plans, and analytics which allowed us to identify several places for optimization. The level of monitoring and analytics that Heimdall Data provides allowed us to identify issues that only a seasoned DBA would be able to gather previously.”
“The Heimdall Proxy optimized our Magento e-commerce platform by:
1) Scaling down Amazon RDS instance by 66%
2) Reducing database connections by 66%
3) Achieving an 80% cache rate for Amazon ElastiCache We improved response times and reduced Amazon RDS costs.”
“Amazon RDS was the most expensive line item in our infrastructure. We reduced our database costs by over 50% with Heimdall Data’s analytics and caching.”
