NDB for OLAP (High Performance MySQL, 3rdEd, p550)


We have a Reporting platform that heavily depends on aggregation (GROUP BYs) and JOINs.
It’s a single node MySQL instance, and scalability is becoming an issue, so we’re looking for for solutions.

In 3rdEdition of the book “High Performance MySQL”, page 550, it reads:

“NDB is a key-value data store, and it can’t do complex operations such as joins and aggregation”

Is this still true after NDB 7.2 and its performance improvements?
