PerconaXtraDBCluster vs TimescaleDB: What are the differences?

Developers describe PerconaXtraDBCluster as "Percona XtraDB Cluster is an active/active high availability and high scalability open source solution for MySQL® clustering". Percona XtraDB Cluster is an active/active high availability and high scalability open source solution for MySQL® clustering. It integrates Percona Server and Percona XtraBackup with the Codership Galera library of MySQL high availability solutions in a single package that enables you to create a cost-effective MySQL high availability cluster. On the other hand, TimescaleDB is detailed as "Scalable time-series database optimized for fast ingest and complex queries. Purpose-built as a PostgreSQL extension". TimescaleDB is the only open-source time-series database that natively supports full-SQL at scale, combining the power, reliability, and ease-of-use of a relational database with the scalability typically seen in NoSQL databases.

PerconaXtraDBCluster and TimescaleDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.

Some of the features offered by PerconaXtraDBCluster are:

  • ProxySQL load balancer
  • Multi-master replication
  • Synchronous replication

On the other hand, TimescaleDB provides the following key features:

  • Packaged as a PostgreSQL extension

We are building an IOT service with heavy write throughput and fewer reads (we need downsampling records). We prefer to have good reliability when comes to data and prefer to have data retention based on policies.

So, we are looking for what is the best underlying DB for ingesting a lot of data and do queries easily

Decisions about PerconaXtraDBCluster and TimescaleDB

Principal Engineer at Sqreen · | 2 upvotes · 104.4K views

I chose TimescaleDB because to be the backend system of our production monitoring system. We needed to be able to keep track of multiple high cardinality dimensions.

The drawbacks of this decision are our monitoring system is a bit more ad hoc than it used to (New Relic Insights)

We are combining this with Grafana for display and Telegraf for data collection
