We have mostly finalized the Percona Live schedule at this point, and I thought I’d take a few minutes to introduce who’s going to be speaking and what they’ll cover. A brief explanation first: we’ve personally recruited the speakers, which is why it has been a slow process to finalize and get abstracts on the [...]
The First ever Sphinx Users Conference is announced to take place in Moscow, Russia on October 24th, which is the Sunday before Highload.ru conference, so if you’re attending that you may just drop by to this event too. this is going to be free technically focused event, close in spirit to Percona Performance Conference, we [...]
Andrew from Sphinx continues to work on improving SQL (or SphinxQL) support and now he published benchmarks comparing arithmetic expression handling in Sphinx to one in MySQL. The result ? Sphinx scored 3x to 20x faster. Andrew goes to explain results are not 100% comparable (as we can see in the table results are even [...]
…any sessions this year; Peter, Vadim, and the rest of us at Percona submitted over a dozen session proposals, which were initially declined. As …Cabral is organizing.
That’s the back story — now on to the Percona Performance Conference! This is not “another MySQL conference.” It’s a performance…to Santa Clara.
We will not be the only ones speaking at Percona Performance Conference; other experts will join us in making presentations too. …to propose a session, please do so through the Percona Performance Conference website.
The Percona team looks forward to greeting you face to face …
So I’m back from OSCON 2008. As usually it is fun conference to attend. Though I could only come for couple of days (Wed/Thu) as things are too busy here. Same as previous year I would note the conference is not as much backend and high performance focused as MySQL Conference or even Velocity, though [...]
As you probably already seen in a post by Baron, Sphinx Release 0.9.8 is finally out, just in time for OSCON 2008. Even though it is “minor release” if you look at the number, it is major release in practice (and you can view snapshots as minor releases). The changes since 0.9.7 are dramatic with [...]
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.
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 [...]
Andrew Aksenoff is pretty slow with release numbers for Sphinx. By MySQL Users Conference 2007 Sphinx version 0.9.7 was released and today we had just 0.9.8-rc1 announced This minor change in version number corresponds to about double source size (looking at download size) and major rewrite for many portions. Sphinx 0.9.8 snapshots were more stable [...]
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. [...]
