Use MySQL to store NoSQL and SQL data in the same database using memcached and InnoDB
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL is a great relational database, but at some point someone (management) in your company is probably going to say that they need to use NoSQL to store their data. After all, NoSQL is one of the latest buzzwords, so it must be good (correct?). Basically, NoSQL allows you to store data without all of the characteristics of a relational database. A very simple explanation is that you are storing all of a data set with just one primary key, and the primary key is how you also retrieve the data. While NoSQL may be good in some cases, it is hard to beat …

Explaining the case for MySQL

My faithful readers, please spare 10 mins of your time, and read Baron's excellent post: https://vividcortex.com/blog/2014/04/30/why-mysql

Nuff said.


Since I can't really shut up, and only if you do like my (humble) take on this, I could say in short:

Every technology/platform/framework I choose, will end up surprising me, limiting me for things can be done easily, and throw many painful challenges at me if and when I need to do things that are closer to the platform's "edges". This is true for everything including …

Developing with MySQL and NoSQL
Employee_Team +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL adopts a very different approach to 'NoSQL' than other databases. With the memcached plugin, MySQL provides the speed and high availability benefits of a standard 'NoSQL' database solution, while mitigating many of the drawbacks to this approach.

A traditional memcached application bypasses the SQL layer entirely, and stores all its data in memory. This makes data access extremely fast, but there is a risk that the data will disappear in the event of a system problem. 

The MySQL memcached plugin for InnoDB also bypasses the SQL and optimization layers, resulting in excellent performance. It goes further, writing key-value data …

Reflections on return to MySQL Community and Ecosystem
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

After a four year hiatus, my participation in last week’s Percona Live MySQL Users conference marked my official return to the MySQL Community and Ecosystem. As with earlier renditions this year’s “UC” was very well attended with a healthy mix of familiar faces and new blood, all coming together to discuss, present and explore the boundaries of the most popular and widely used open source database on the planet.  There were many good, informative keynote and technical sessions, BoFs and the exhibit hall was packed most of the operating hours with those …

Reports exaggerated
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I've been letting the blog rest recently, and not so recently as well.  The problem is not a lack of subjects, but a lack of time to do them any justice.  However it is quite sad to see that my last entry was in September 2012, so it is time to post again.

Of late I have been pondering what I have to say about :

  • Distributed MVCC and write-scaling
  • Different approaches to eventual consistency with replicated RDBMS
  • Various MySQL Cluster related topics
  • Various general rambling and unstructured topics

However, these will take some time to percolate and calcify. …

Why I Love Open Source
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Anders Karlsson wrote about Some myths on Open Source, the way I see it a few days ago.  Anders' article is mostly focused on exploding the idea that open source magically creates high quality code.  It is sad to say you do not have to look very far to see how true this is.

While I largely agree with Anders' points, there is far more that could be said on this subject, especially on the benefits of open source. I love working on open source software. Here are three reasons that are especially important to me.

Are SQL Databases Dead?

I like the image of this city of Mesa Verde. It’s fascinating to see how ancient cities were built, especially as an inhabitant of one of the worlds largest cities today, New York. I’m a long time relational database guy. I worked at scores of dot-coms in the 90′s as an old-guard Oracle DBA, and […]
