Problems with Open Source: Part 2
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
In my prior post on the problems with open source, I wrote that one issue that impacts open source revenues is the macro economy, and how a declining or difficult macro economy can result in reduction of revenues to open source companies. The following article talks about how financially troubled Spain is saving a "fortune" by moving to open source. The Spanish government's savings are coming at the expense of proprietary server software companies--most likely Microsoft--but I would be willing to bet that none of this "savings" is flowing to the open source vendors. That is what happens in a difficult macro economy.

Open Source, the MySQL market (and TokuDB in particular)

I was reviewing the Percona Live sponsors list the other day and pondering the potential success stories associated with this product or that one…. and as I was preparing to put more thought on the topic, a PlanetMySQL post caught my eye. It was penned by Mike Hogan and titled, “Thoughts on Xeround and Free!

opeark-kit revision 196 released

This is a long due maintenance release of openark-kit. This release includes bugfixes and some enhancements, mainly to oak-online-alter-table.

oak-online-alter-table Changes / bug fixes include:

  • Support for keyword-named columns
  • Use of FORCE INDEX due to lack of MySQL's ability for figure out the chunking key at all times

5 years of MySQL

People often write a blog post when they reach some nice anniversary since they joined MySQL community. Well, for those old enough it usually means when they joined MySQL AB as employee. For me this was January 2008. Because I didn't remember the month correctly, I haven't blogged anything then, but decided to save it for a better opportunity - now.

TL;DR Starting this week I will be working for 10gen, selling MongoDB to the Nordics. This blog post is really long - even then it doesn't contain the most interesting stories, I'm not sure if they can ever be published. Sorry for the length, but remember you don't need to read all at once. This is my last MySQL post so save some of it for cold winter days!

Since we had the pleasure to announce that TokuDB is open source on Monday, it’s been a thrilling ride. With several members of the team out west all week, back on the east coast we’ve been seeing quite a lot of questions, suggestions, and exciting results.

Here are some of the highlights of our first week of open source:

We started hearing back from the community almost immediately after the announcement with discussions in multiple forums. We even reached #2 on Hacker News for a bit.

ZRM Community Edition 3.0 (Beta) with Parallel Logical Backup Support for MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are pleased to announce the release of Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) Community Edition 3.0 (Beta). This release features support for parallel logical backups as an additional full backup method, which is made possible by integrating with the mydumper open source project.  This backup method represents a faster, scalable way to backup large databases.  The mysqldump (single threaded logical backup) support is still available for backing up stored procedures/routines.  ZRM Community Edition allows you to create multiple backup sets with different backup methods and policies; so, now you can do MySQL database backups with mydumper, as well as mysqldump in the same server.

We have also made many additional improvements and bug fixes since our earlier 2.2 release. We currently

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:

Why I don't care about open core any more
+2 Vote Up -2Vote Down

For reasons that I will blog about in a couple of weeks, several people last week asked me what I think about open core. My answer was that nowadays I don't care much about the topic. Long time readers of this blog might be surprised at such an answer, so I thought this was a good time to reflect on why I don't think it is very important anymore, and more importantly to document the empirical evindence that we now have about open core as a business strategy.

A new release for common_schema: an alpha version of rdebug: MySQL Debugger and Debugging API is now included with common_schema.

With a different license in mind for rdebug, common_schema changes license to GPL (2 or above).

    How to fix the Percona repo failure when installing Percona Toolkit
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Here’s a solution to the not-so-long-standing issue of the Percona yum repo being broken for the CentOS 6 x86_64 version of the Percona-toolkit package. The repo listing is reporting an older version of the RPM which is not available on the site, so to fix this you just have to download the newer file and tell yum to add it locally. The side benefit is that you can use Yum to manage the RPM without adding the Percona repo, since the default settings for their repo could/have/had caused conflicts with Base Repo versions of MySQL packages; the Percona repo instructions set ‘enabled=1′ — not a great idea if you’re not setup to use the Yum priorities method of repo weighting.

    So, if you see this after installing the repo via the instructions on their site:
