    Dear Community,

    it is my pleasure to announce that there will be a community dinner on the evening of Monday the 11th of November in London coinciding with the Percona Live Conference. In the same spirit as the community dinner in Santa Clara, the event will be `pay your own way` so it's important to bring some cash on the evening so that splitting the bill is as painless as possible.

    The venue is Masala Zone in Earl's Court, which is a short walk from the Millenium Gloucester. For anyone that would like to walk over we will meet in the foyer of the hotel at ~7pm and walk over. 

    Please make your way over to our eventbrite page to register your attendance so that we can give the guys at Masala Zone good notice of how many to expect.

    PLUK Attendees: Show of hands
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    It will soon be November and we'll be queuing up to register for the Percona Live conference once again. I spoke with some of this year's Percona Live London committee we all agreed that it would be great to arrange a community dinner if there was a community interest. In the past years of the PLUK conference there has not been a community event to attend in order to discuss sessions and make new friends. I for one love the `Pythian-arranged Community Dinner` at Pedro's that occurs annually in Santa Clara during the Percona Live Conference. I know that there are many attendees that do London and CA each year and wager that they'd agree that it's a great event. So lets have it... please r.s.v.p here and if the numbers are good enough we'll schedule something the evening of the tutorials. Please let me know of your interest in the comments below. Thanks :D

    John Cesario of Go Daddy on Percona MySQL Training
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Senior MySQL DBA John Cesario of Go Daddy spoke at Percona Live in April and shared his views on Percona MySQL Training. Here’s what he had to say:

    “Go Daddy is passionate about helping our customers. Percona Innodb training gives us another tool to elevate our customer support to the next level. It gives us the kind of insight that only comes from understanding MySQL at a code level. This helps Go Daddy understand MySQL internals, so we can increase performance and reduce troubleshooting time. The instructors are top-notch and leverage their years of field work, providing curriculum that is both relevant and immediately practical. I highly recommend Percona training for all aspects of MySQL consumption: from developers to operational administrators.”

    Why it’s beneficial to attend MySQL conferences

    Peter Zaitsev speaks at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, Calif. in April 2013.

    In the MySQL ecosystem, there is some sort of conference or another all year long. But why are they important?

    To answer this, we can split the audience into 3 groups:

    - MySQL Professionnals
    - MySQL Community Members
    - MySQL (Future?) Users

    Depending on which category you are in, you can have different expectations about conferences.

    For MySQL Professionals, it’s the best opportunity to meet partners, customers and also other business players in real life – and this is a very important point.

    Open Source TokuDB Resources

    Since we announced that TokuDB is now open source, there has been a lot of positive feedback (thanks!) and also some questions about the details. I want to take this opportunity to give a quick high level guide to describe what our repositories on Github are.

    Here are the repositories:

    • ft-index. This repository is the “magic”. It contains the Fractal Tree data structures we have been talking about for years. This is also the main piece that was previously closed source. Here are some interesting directories:
      • src: This directory is a layer that implements an API that is similar to the BDB API.
      • locktree: an in-memory data structure that maintains transactions’ row-level locks.

    Announcing TokuDB v7: Open Source and More
    +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Every few months, I get the fun job of announcing what’s new in TokuDB®, but this time is special. With Version 7, TokuDB for MySQL and MariaDB is going open source.

    The free Community Edition is fully functional and fully performant. It has all the compression you’ve come to expect from TokuDB. It has hot schema changes: no-down-time column insertion, deletion, renaming, etc., as well as index creation. It has clustering secondary keys. We are also announcing an Enterprise Edition (coming soon) with additional benefits, such as a support package and advanced backup and recovery tools.

    Making TokuDB open source is a natural next step for Tokutek’s involvement in the MySQL community. So far, Tokutek has been involved in the community in many ways:
