+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’m speaking at Percona Live, LinuxCon Europe, and linux.conf.au. And I just co-founded a new company.

I have a few busy weeks behind me, and even busier weeks ahead. If you’ve been wondering why recently I haven’t been updating this space too frequently, here’s why:

Yours truly and fellow ex-Linbiters Martin Loschwitz and Andreas Kurz have recently founded hastexo, an independent professional services organization focused on open-source high availability and disaster recovery. We are already offering both on-site and remote

OurSQL Episode 60: Charming Data
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This week we talk with Giuseppe Maxia (pronouncing his name correctly!) about new features in Tungsten replicator, and go over a lot of news.

News:
There was a lot of news this week! There were three really big announcements at Oracle OpenWorld that relate to the MySQL community:

Oracle released a NoSQL database. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/nosqldb/overview/index.html
It’s an ACID-compliant key-value data store, with a Java API for put, delete and get operations and includes replication. The data partitioning and distribution is automatic and based on a hash function.

Surge 2011 slides, recap
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This year’s Surge conference was a great sophomore event to follow up last year’s inaugural conference. A lot of very smart people were there, and the hallway track was great.

I presented on three things: a lightning talk about causes of MySQL downtime; I chaired a panel on Big Data and the Cloud; and I showed how to derive scalability and performance metrics from TCP traffic. I’ve sent my slides to the Surge organizers, and I understand that they will be posting them as well as integrating them into the video of my session. In the meanwhile you can download my slides from Percona’s presentations page.

Speaking at Percona Live in London this October
+1 Vote Up -2Vote Down

Two of my proposals for Percona Live London on October 24-25 have been approved! Yes, I really had to propose them and get them approved like everyone else, although as I’m sure you can imagine, I had a good chance at being accepted :-) Not all of my talks were accepted, though.

I’ll be presenting a half-day tutorial on how to get great results when troubleshooting MySQL problems, and a conference session on how to use TCP packet headers to measure and analyze a surprising variety of aspects of MySQL performance and

Helan Går During OSCon 2011
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

During OSCon, I went to dinner with a bunch of MySQL folks - Henrik, Mats, Lars, and Rich (audio engineer for the OurSQL podcast). On the recommendation of some friends in Portland, we went to Le Bistro Montage. There, we raised our shot glasses (full of an oyster shooter) and sang Helan Går (well, I did not sing because I have not familiarized myself with the song -- I am not a big drinker!)

Percona Live from a community insider’s perspective
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I am writing this on my blog because I want to take the Percona hat off (partially) and wear my community hat a bit. My loyalty was to the MySQL community long before I was involved with Percona.

There are now three Percona Live events for which we have signed venue contracts and begun plans: London in October, Washington DC in January, and Santa Clara in April. I have insider knowledge of what’s going on with planning all three events, and I’m proud and happy that I have a community-member seat at the table.

The London event, which is October 24-25, will be a natural interpolation between the medium size of our very successful event earlier this year in New York, and the much larger Santa Clara event next
