With Altinity and Percona’s partnership, building more powerful, cost-efficient applications using ClickHouse as an analytic extension for MySQL is now a reality.
Since its inception, Altinity has contributed to and maintained many open source projects that are accelerating ClickHouse development and adoption. Read our open source story!
Want fast MySQL analytics? Then check out the Altinity Sink Connector for ClickHouse. Merging the power of ClickHouse with MySQL, the sink connector lets you replicate data from MySQL to ClickHouse in real-time.
Our last ClickHouse SF Bay Area meetup was on September 10th and focused on data integration. This turned out to be a popular subject. We had well over 100 signups with 59 people in attendance. This article summarizes the talks and provides links to slides and videos.
ProxySQL is a popular open source, high performance and protocol-aware proxy server for MySQL and its forks. Since September 2017 ProxySQL supports ClickHouse as a backend, so clients can connect to ClickHouse via MySQL protocol. In practice, this helps MySQL-aware applications to start using ClickHouse as without changes in the client library.
To avoid some limitations to this approach, ProxySQL creator René Cannaò added additional functionality for query rewrite. With his permission, we cross-post his article describing new functionality in our blog.

Vladislav Klimenko from Altinity and Valery Panov from Ivinco presented a talk at HighLoad Siberia 2018 conference recently. They described the real problem that Ivinco faced and how it has been solved with migration of analytics from MySQL into ClickHouse using MySQL to ClickHouse replication. A few months ago we introduced clickhouse-mysql tool in our blog, and Ivinco was the first company we know that tried it and used it in production.
In this blog post, I’ll look at how you can analyze MySQL audit logs (Percona Server for MySQL) with ClickHouse and ClickTail. Audit logs are available with a free plugin for Percona Server for MySQL. Besides providing insights about activity on your server, you might need the logs for compliance purposes.
Why Archive? Hard drives are cheap nowadays, but storing lots of data in MySQL is not practical and can cause all sorts of performance bottlenecks.
In this article Percona’s blogger Alexander Rubin is talking about archiving MySQL tables in ClickHouse for storage and analytics.

There are multiple ways how ClickHouse and MySQL can work together. External Dictionaries, ProxySQL support or [realtime streaming] of MySQL binary logs into ClickHouse. A few weeks ago ClickHouse team has released mysql() table function that allows to access MySQL data directly from ClickHouse. This opens up a number of interesting capabilities. Accidentally we have found [a blog article in Japanese] by Mikage Sawatari? , that tests a new way of integration and translated it for our blog with some minor edits.
Altinity has developed an open source clickhouse-mysql tool that helps to migrate existing MySQL table to ClickHouse and setup realtime replication of changes (INSERTS only). Here we review necessary steps using a simple example.
