Setting up WordPress on Debian/Ubuntu running Tengine web server
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I will change my host provider within a month. I’ve been using Midphase for several years and have decided to use Linode as my next virtual private service provider. I will move this site there in the next few weeks. This will be my first time moving a domain and I hope the transfer will be smooth without too much down time. After all, I know my readers worldwide are hanging on to every word I type and deserve a site that runs 24 by 7

Since I will have total control of this host, I decided to use Tengine, a great fork of the Nginx web/proxy server. Here is …

Cloud Outages Keeping Your Application Down? It Doesn’t Have To!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We’ve all been through downtime at some point and deplore the lost work and productivity that comes with it. And the only thing worse than server downtime is having to report that downtime to frustrated customers who are depending on your service for their business.

Yesterday, AWS server issues meant downtime for highly trafficked sites Instagram, Vine, Airbnb, and IFTTTA. According to AWS’s health dashboard, the …

Aggregation queries 10x slower on MySQL compared to Postgres??
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

How can this be? I am shocked. I have looked at query plans, confirmed indexes, checked handler status variables after query execution to figure out what MySQL is up to, and I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. MySQL is using the right index, using ICP, Batched Key Access. Basically, everything that we can throw at it. I even tried MariaDB and it used the new Batched Hash Join. Same result. Postgres is done in 150ms and MySQL 5.6 takes 3s!

We had a customer who was migrating from Postgres to MySQL approach us about a slow running query. Here’s the situation. They have a fleet of cars, which are loaned out to …

This week, we announced the launch of GenieDB cloud-hosted Globally Distributed MySQL-as-a-Service, our scalable, highly available database-as-a-service (DBaaS).

When I start recounting the many benefits of this new automated platform to build web-scale applications, I fear I might sound one of those late-night infomercials…

“But wait, if you act now, you’ll get all the amazing benefits of geographical database distribution, including: continuous availability during regional outages (whether datacenter or cloud failure, be it hurricane, …

Morning Reading: Database Players to Watch
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Catching up on our reading today, we saw a blog post from Chris Stevens, the multi-faceted VP of Engineering at Traxo, technology consultant, and Full Stack developer. In his post, he notes some of the impressive new database technologies he’s seeing lately in tech blogs and on the conference circuit.

Chris says that when it makes sense he advises his clients to look at non-relational datatstores, but for a number of reasons he works with MySQL wherever possible. Many of his clients looking to run globally distributed applications …

NPR on Software Patents
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A few years back, along with some folks at MySQL and in the open source community, we helped kick off a campaign against software patents in Europe.  This was a hot topic and surprisingly, it seemed no large companies were willing to step up the fight.  As a relatively young company, MySQL had a lot to lose if someone went on the attack against us using patents.  While we had a very small number of patents in our portfolio (mostly through acquisitions), we help them only for defensive …
