Setting Shakespeare Straight. NoSQL, NewSQL or MySQL: THAT is the Question.

Come Find the Answer Launching a next-gen app?  You need a next-gen database.  But figuring out which one is no walk-in-the-park. Tune in next Tuesday to a webinar where Matt Aslett, research manager for data management and analytics at 451 Research, Doron Levari, ScaleBase’s CTO, and I will discuss:

The increasingly complex and ever-changing database market The benefits and [...] Read More

Calling all next gen app providers: Who’s got your back?

Next gen app providers (and perhaps more specifically, database architects) are clamoring for database technologies that just work. At least, that’s the message we got from one of our newest customers: Mozilla. Earlier this month, we caught up with Sheeri Cabral, database architect at Mozilla and and overall MySQL rock star, to get the down-and-dirty on why [...] Read More

Linus on Instantiation and Armadaification

I feel a sense of pride when I think that I was involved in the development and maintenance of what was probably the first piece of software accepted into Debian which then had and still has direct up-stream support from Microsoft. The world is a better place for having Microsoft in it. The first operating system I ever ran on an 08086-based CPU was MS-DOS 2.x. I remember how thrilled I was when we got to see how my friend’s 80286 system ran BBS software that would cause a modem to dial a local system and display the application as if it were running on a local machine. Totally sweet.

When we were living at 6162 NE Middle in the nine-eight 292, we got an 80386 which ran Doom. Yeah, the original one, not the fancy new one with the double barrel shotgun, but it would probably run that one, too. It was also …

Google fighting against regular content as well?

Whatever Google intended to do with the latest update, I personally think there was some collateral damage done to sites like mysqljoin.com . Since this is only a site I created to show people how joins can be used within MySQL (for free), I never spent money to a SEO agency or something. All I did was installing a SEO Plugin for WordPress. Am I guilty of “over optimizing” now?

The site is approx. 1,5 years old and it grew slowly. The first few month nothing really happened, then people somehow started to link to us , people on stackoverflow.com started to reference us and things like that. To me, this looks really organic. However, the traffic dropped overnight from approx. 1500 unique visitors per day to approx. 300 unique visitors.

If this update works to fight again spammy sites in the organic results, I’m fine with it. Even though I have no idea why Google …

just switched from wordpress to serendipity

Today I switched my blog from wordpress to serendipity, because I was dissatisfied about the quality of some wordpress plugins. Serendipity apparently provides a smaller range of plugins with a higher quality. This site will be under construction for the next time and I will not publish the tutorials and howtos from my old blog.

This site is still under cunstruction …

Moved to a new hosting provider

Again, I have moved to a new hosting provider after my free-tier with Amazon EC2 expired.  As usual I was looking for a good VPS provider with a decent price, providing good support and in particular a provider supporting FreeBSD, my favorite OS for server (for desktop I still prefer GNU/Linux.)

This time I have carefully reviewed many options and have finally settled with RootBSD, one of the reputed VPS hosting providers if you are choosing FreeBSD as your server OS.  One of the prime reasons for choosing FreeBSD is its performance, stability and the FreeBSD ports system.

Although my …

Working with ScaleBase and NOSQL

There is a huge amount of buzz around NOSQL, and we at ScaleBase are happy to see companies making the move to NOSQL. Despite what some people might think, we consider it a blessed change. It is time for applications to stop having a single data store – namely a relational database (probably Oracle) – and start using the best tool for the job.

In the last couple of years, since NOSQL technologies broke into our world, a lot of experience has been gathered on how to use them. Mainly, we see NoSQL technologies used for one of the following scenarios:

  • Queries that require a very short response time
  • Storing data without a well-defined schema, or storing data with a frequently modified schema

Now, I’m not in any way saying that NOSQL solutions are not used for other scenarios as well; I’m only saying that from our experience here at ScaleBase ,  these are the most common scenarios.
