Drizzle Podcast #1
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It has been over a year since the last OurSQL podcast. First, I want to thank everyone who has written in to tell me how much they loved the OurSQL podcast, and how they want it back. Plans are in the works for that, mostly I got busy writing a book on MySQL geared towards folks who are new to MySQL, but not necessarily new to databases. The book is coming out in May and can be pre-ordered at http://tinyurl.com/mysqlbook.

But enough about the past…..In this first Drizzle podcast, Jay Pipes and I talk about what Drizzle is and how Drizzle is different from MySQL both technically and from a community standpoint.

The podcast can be downloaded (5.76 Mb as an mp3 file) or played right through your browser at http://technocation.org/content/drizzle-podcast-%25231. The show notes are also on that page.

On Ma.gnolia, and data recovery
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There’s a good podcast from Chris Messina and Larry Halff, about what really happened at Ma.gnolia. If you’re at all interested in what happened (i.e. how did they lose all their bookmark data), don’t hesitate to watch the video. I took some quick notes:

  • half a terabyte database file got corrupted
  • a mysql 5 database
  • everything was running even though there was corruption, and eventually, the site went down
  • backup system also failed, as it didn’t backup the data from mysql
  • backup was just backing up corrupted data (file sync over a firewire network was the backup mechanism)
  • a Rails application, he now recommends clouds over running your own infrastructure for startups

MySQL Rocks: Wen Huang, in Makati City, Philippines
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’m at the Sun Tech Days in beautiful Philippines, and all I can say is the energy is tremendous. I’m hearing there are about 1,400 attendees, and this number might grow tomorrow.

Armed with a video camera, I decided to take a few video snapshots. My first victimguest on my yet to be named videocast is Wen Huang, Product Manager for NetBeans, at Sun Microsystems.

Wen Huang has been a MySQL user since 1999, and had a past life as a web developer in various web shops, some large, some small. One commonality he had at all his jobs though is that they always use MySQL.

He’s an action junkie, preferring to have the latest version of the

Talking with Meena: Open HA Cluster - Whole Enchilada now Open-sourced
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As of today, the third, final and largest code release for Open High Availability Cluster has been made available.  This now means that all of the Open HA Cluster code is available as free software.   This will allow developers and admins to access and build complete HA solutions built on source code from the OpenSolaris project.

Right before the launch I grabbed some time with Meenakshi Kaul-Basu, the engineering director at Sun responsible for Availability products, and whose group the Open HA Cluster falls under.  Take a listen to Meenakshi's explanation of the event and her insight:

The 451 Group’s Commercial Adoption of Open Source (CAOS) Research Service now has a podcast (iTunes or RSS feed).

A month or so ago, I was having a conversation with The 451 Group’s Vice President of Research Services, Simon Carruthers, about ways to expand the offerings of the CAOS Research Service. The CAOS Research Service includes aspects that are public (such as this blog), but the majority of the work that we do is accessible only to our paying clients, namely our research articles and reports, as well as our advisory service.

We made the decision to add a biweekly conference call

The Ghost of HyperCASTs Past - Archives for You
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

As I listened to today’s OpenNMS and Hyperic HyperCAST, it occurred to me that I haven’t posted a couple of previous archives. Which is a shame, because there have been some great ones.

HyperCAST 8 was all about upgrading to Hyperic HQ 3.2.x. It includes some live demos of upgrades in action, and covers upgrades for bundles, separate databases, and separate JRE’s.

HyperCAST 9 was Hyperic en espanol - and it was conducted completely in Spanish.

Enjoy! And remember, you can always register for upcoming HyperCASTs and view archives at hyperic.com/demo/hypercasts.html

I migrated the blogs’ database and code from moonunit to avenger, both of which run Debian Sarge. Y’all should now notice a vast improvement in throughput. The ISP that Moonunit sits on should also see a large decrease in traffic.

Today, I added a campaign to raise funds for hosting. If you have any extra funds, please help me with colocation costs. It’s expensive and y’all use up a bunch of bandwidth. If you find this site useful please
