There’s a European OpenSQL Camp coming up
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In addition to the Boston edition, there’s an OpenSQL Camp at the same time and place as FrOSCon mid-August in Germany. The call for papers is open until July 11th. As always, the conference is about all kinds of open-source databases: MySQL and PostgreSQL are only two of the obvious ones; MongoDB and Cassandra featured prominently at the last one I attended, and SQLite was well represented at the first one.

    Cloud openness contemplated
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I caught some of the keynotes and discussion at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit today, and was particularly interested in the panel discussion on open source and cloud computing. While we are used to hearing and talking about how important open source software is to cloud computing (open source giving to cloud computing), moderator John Mark Walker posed the question of whether cloud computing gives back? The discussion also rightfully focused on openness in cloud computing, how open source might or might not translate to cloud openness and the importance of data to be open as well.

    The discussion also centered on some issues regarding open standards and how open is open

    Cassandra is my NoSQL solution but..
    +1 Vote Up -1Vote Down
    In the past few months, I have tested many NoSQL solutions. Redis, MongoDB, HBase yet Cassandra is the Column Store DB I picked because of its speed (on writes), reliability, built in feature set that makes it multi-datacenter aware. The one other personal reward for Cassandra is it is written in Java. I like reading and writing in Java more than C++ although it really does not matter for me personally in the end.

    Let us talk about the reason why I am introducing Cassandra into my infrastructure and some of its drawbacks I have noticed so far.

    Why it is being introduced:
    We have a feature where we record every single click for 50 million Monthly Active Users (real-time) and storing this in mySQL is just waste of semi-good hardware for data that is only looked at for the past 24 hours. Over the course of some time (couple of months) more than 3

    NoSQL is a new way to think about persistence. Most NoSQL systems are not ACID compliant (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability).

    Generally, most NoSQL systems have:

    • Denormalization
    • Eventual Consistency
    • Schema-Free
    • Horizontal Scale

    NoSQL tries to scale (more) simply, it is starting to go

    Getting started with Cassandra
    +6 Vote Up -1Vote Down

    With the motivation from today’s public news on Twitter’s move from MySQL to Cassandra, my own skills desire following in-depth discussions at last November’s Open SQL Camp to consider Cassandra and yesterday’s discussion with a new client on persistent key-value store products, today I download installed and configured for the first time. Not that today’s news was unexpected, if you follow the Twitter Engineering Open Source projects you would have seen Cassandra as well as other products being used or evaluated by Twitter.

    So I went from
