Powering high-traffic sites such as NASA, NBC, and Twitter, the Drupal content management system (CMS) is popular with those running websites for government and security-conscious organizations.
For such organizations, 100% uptime is crucial. Scaling the underlying MySQL database often requires code modification to take advantage of that improved database infrastructure. Such tuning not only takes considerable time and resources the first time, but also every security update means changes to your custom Drupal code.
ScaleArc offers a compelling alternative. ScaleArc deploys transparently in front of Drupal and MySQL, offering unprecedented uptime and performance – with no changes to Drupal or the MySQL database.
Paired with Drupal, ScaleArc provides out-of-the-box support for:
- Automatic failover between MySQL database servers
- A 35-fold improvement in Drupal performance
- Zero downtime maintenance
- Transparent caching with no app changes
