MySQL Users Conference 2008 has number of Storage Engines presented which claim to Kick Ass. Walking in exhibition hall you could see KickFire, Infobright, Tokutek, ScaleDB. I have not seen NitroDB in the exhibition call this year but they are also worth to mention. It is interesting to see all of them showing benchmarks with [...]
Yesterday we started the conference early with MySQL Community Dinner which was quite a success with about 30-50 people showing up (hard to count as people come and go) even though it was conflicting with Silicon Valley MySQL Meetup and which at least prevented Jeremy and his team showing up. UPDATE: What I was thinking… [...]
Percona, the company maintaining MySQL Performance Blog has a good presence on the conference this year. We have me (Peter), Vadim, Aurimas, Baron and Andrew attending the show. Alexey had to stay because he could not get Visa in time and Maciek is staying to be able to reliably service emergencies arising with our customers.
So it looks like these days Kickfire welcomed everyone to tell they’ve been working with Kickfire – Baron Keith Frank is writing about KickFire. Good Job Kickfire PR team you really energized community. We also were working with Kickfire for quite a while and are also very excited to give it a try.
On his way to MySQL Users Conference Andrew will stop by in Moscow, Russia and give a talk about Sphinx current features, development plans, and deployment use cases. Interesting enough the meeting will take place at Moscow State University, Computer Science Faculty – my “Alma Mater” in the same building and even same room which [...]
Guess what ? I also will be speaking at MySQL Users Conference 2008, which is always excited. According to session schedule I’ll have one talk about Innodb Scalability Limits and another one together with Andrew Aksenoff about Sphinx. Looking back at Proposals (+1) I’m surprised only one talk was chosen and also this particular one. [...]
OK, I am not getting too much people feedback on what would they like to hear about on MySQL Users Conference, so I went ahead and submitted few presentation ideas. I do not expect all of them would be accepted, furthermore it would be hard to prepare so many good presentations if they are so [...]
It is submission time now, with about one week left till proposal submission deadline. Both me and Vadim had submitted few talks to the Grand Jury which will make elite selection of sessions for MySQL Users Conference and we plan to submit few more. Our experience in MySQL is rather broad – we can prepare [...]
Yesterday I’ve attended MySQL Customers Conference in London. This event is much smaller size than Users Conference (one day and about 170 people attending) and surely less geeky – there were no one from MySQL Development Support or Consulting teams and Sales Engineers were as close as you could get. Though Anders Karlsson and Ivan [...]
