HopsFS based on MySQL Cluster 7.5 delivers a scalable HDFS

The swedish research institute, SICS, have worked hard for a few years on
developing a scalable and a highly available Hadoop implementation using
MySQL Cluster to store the metadata. In particular they have focused on the
Hadoop file system (HDFS) and the YARN. Using features of MySQL
Cluster 7.5 they were able to achieve linear scaling in number of name
nodes as well as in number of NDB data nodes to the number of nodes
available for the experiment (72 machines). Read the press release from
SICS here

The existing metadata layer of HDFS is based on a single Java server
that acts as name node in HDFS. There are implementations to ensure
that this metadata layer have HA by using a backup name node and to
use ZooKeeper for heartbeats and a number of …

MySQL Cluster 7.5 is GA, best cluster release ever

I have been fairly quiet on my blog for some time. We've been very busy
developing new features for MySQL Cluster 7.5 and ensuring that the
quality is improved even further.

We're now very pleased to release a new version of MySQL Cluster.

MySQL Cluster 7.5 contains a number of new things that makes MySQL
Cluster even better.
1) You can declare a table as a READ_BACKUP table. This means that
the updating transactions will receive the commit acknowledge
a little bit later to ensure that we can always use any of the
replicas for reading. We will use the nearest replica for
committed reads, for locking reads we will still use the primary
replica to avoid deadlocks.

For applications that are mostly read-focused one can make it easier
to set this variable by setting the ndb-read-backup config variable
to 1 in the MySQL Server …

Connection Management in Database Jones

How does an application configure its database connection?  I find this to be a pretty interesting question. As the application moves from a developer’s workstation to a test harness, then to staging, and on to production, the database connection properties can change each time. …

MySQL Support People - Those Who Joined Oracle to Work on MySQL

In this post I'd like to mention my colleagues from MySQL Support who had joined the team when Oracle already acquired Sun (and MySQL as a part of it), in 2010-2012. There were several really great engineers among them:

  • Jesper Krogh - with his 31 public bug reports, numerous blog posts (check also this one), ps_tools and presentations, Jesper is well known to MySQL community. He had joined Oracle as Senior MySQL Support Engineer in March, 2011 and is a Senior Principal Technical Support Engineer at Oracle now. Check one of his …

My endeavour to build MySQL on Windows

I recently worked a lot on getting my local Windows box to compile Windows.
I got a lot of help from the below link that took me a few steps towards the

I had to save away my bison installation, uninstall it and then also
go into a registry editor and remove the various links to the Start Menu referring to
some help for Bison that had spaces in the registry. Resolving this meant that I could
manually run bison on the files in the mysql tarball and get the desired result. But it
was still not enough, I still had the same error when running a full automatic compile.

So then I found the …

MySQL Support People - The Next Generation

My first post in this series caused quite an active discussion on Facebook. Readers correctly noted some mistakes in dates and missing names in the list. I've corrected some of the mistakes already and will correct some others later. What was also noted is that initially support for MySQL was provided by developers (this is really important, we'll get back to this later), and of them many had never even got a title of Support engineer. Of those who had not I listed only Monty...

I just want to explain why I made these mistakes and/or why I (intentionally) had not listed developers etc. First of all, I based my post on my memories (so I could be also wrong about start dates and many details) and that's why I could not …
