MySQL Compatible

Use what you know, since TiDB relies on standard SQL commands. There is no need to learn a new query language or make massive and painful changes to your application. TiDB enables application developers and users to continue working with what they already use but still benefit from the speed and capability of a single unified database.


Modern Hybrid Transactional and Analytical Processing (HTAP)

Make better business decisions by removing data silos, providing everyone in your organization with the real-time information they need to do their job, all from a single database. TiDB automatically stores your data in both a row and column store, then optimally determines which is used to respond to a query, providing your results quickly and in the most efficient way.

Group 2846

An express delivery company serving over 96% of China needed a database that supported horizontal scalability, distributed transactions with strong consistency, highly concurrent writes, and minute-level, multi-dimensional queries. With TiDB, they increased IT efficiency by 300%, and in the second quarter of 2020, reducing the cost per order by 17.1% year-on-year.

Group 2844

A bank in China, with over 260 branches throughout the country, needed an OLTP system that supports massive amounts of data and completely distributed transactions. They chose TiDB and see that query latency is reduced from tens of seconds to tens of milliseconds.

Group 2870

An online marketplace for classified ads, with more than 500 million users, wanted to move away from traditional ETL-based analytics. They deployed 52 TiDB clusters in the production environment to store 160+ TB of data, with 320+ servers running in 15 applications. The databases have 5.5 billion daily visits. To maintain such large-scale clusters, they only need two DBAs, who also manage MySQL databases.

Group 2875

A gaming company, currently supporting more than 100 million active users, needed a database that could accommodate their expected growth while still staying cost-competitive. After deploying the entire TiDB data analytics system on the cloud, they reduced hardware costs by 50%.

Group 2847

An online auto trading company found that with nearly 1 billion data records and 1,000 QPS, the 99.9th percentile latency is still lower than 128 ms with TiDB. They also expanded the time range an application can query from the most recent three months to all historical data.

Group 2873

TiDB supports organizations looking for transactional and analytical processing to replace their traditional data processing system. It provides a transactional key-value store along with the ability to perform large-scale analytics. TiDB is the one database that delivers OLTP and OLAP capabilities in real-time.
