Impressions from Percona Live, London

Am now back from Percona Live, London. Here are some quick impressions of mine.

The physical location of the conference was excellent, not far from Tower Bridge. The conference area itself was nice and has good atmosphere. Very well organized. Kudos to Percona!

Theme

The official theme for the conference was "Discover the Power of MySQL". However, looking back at the conference, I think the de-facto theme was "High Availability and Scale Out for MySQL".

Why do I say that? Look at the sponsors of the event; look at the talks. There were talks by and about Clustrix, Tungsten (parallel replication), Schooner, Choosing a HA solution (by Henrik), Fusion-IO, MySQL Cluster, MySQL in the Cloud, Galera Replication, Scalebase, Spider, MHA, Various HA Solutions (by Oli Sennhauser)...

There were other talks, about all …

On Clouds And Data

I'm sitting in SFO tonight, awaiting my return trip back to Hurricane Pending Maryland. (As a former Floridian, I must of course scoff at any notions that this hurricane is significant). Walking through the airport I noticed a large billboard about "Big Data and the Cloud". This is the kind of billboard you only see in Silicon Valley; I don't see signs like that in Portland or Ottawa, and certainly not when I had to change flights in Detroit this year.

Anyway, these two buzz words aren't a local phenomenon, and are actually taking the tech world by storm. Big Data has become serious enough that there are multiple conferences now for folks interested in the topic. And cloud, well, perhaps harder to define, but more and more businesses are moving to the cloud every day. The problem here is that, most of the traditional ideas on big data run entirely counter to the ideas that work well in the cloud.

Last spring I …

Tuning InnoDB Configuration

I had earlier written a post on tuning the MySQL server configuration which was more geared towards the MyISAM storage engine. While that is not because I didn't intend on ignoring InnoDB but because I had planned a whole post on tuning InnoDB related configuration. So this post is the post that I had planned, I have discussed the major configuration parameters in here that should help you out most of the times.

Java One 2010 Brazil Day 2 Trip Report - Pics & Slides

JavaOne Latin America 2010 (Day 1 and 0) started in an exciting way where I found a nice multi-instance cluster installation of GlassFish. More on that later but enjoyed meeting colleagues from different groups within Oracle.

I gave a presentation on "Whats New in Enterprise Java Beans 3.1" and the slides are available:

S314168 - What's New in Enterprise Java Bean Technology @ JavaOne Brazil 2010
The attendees seem to like simplified packaging (EJB-in-a-WAR and deployment descriptor-free), no-interface bean, cron-like syntax, and other features were well appreciated by the users. All other …

Oracle Open World / Java One 2010 Brazil Day 1 Trip Report

Oracle Open World 2010 Latin America was kick started this morning by Oracle's President Mark Hurd. Later Adam Messinger's (Vice President in Fusion Middleware group at Oracle) keynote started JavaOne Brazil and gave a status update on the Java platform. In his talk, Staffan showed a demo of JRockit Mission Control. TIM (a local Brazilian telecom company) showed how they are using Java to serve multi-million users in Brazil. Java FX super fast rendering capabilities were shown in a video. I showed how a multi-instance GlassFish 3.1 cluster can be easily created using web-based administration console. The steps to reproduce the demo are explained in the video below:
