Active support for MySQL 5.0 and extended support for 4.1 will soon end

At the end of this year, two long lasting versions of MySQL will fall off the radar, each of them in a different way.

MySQL 5.0 active support will end.

What does that mean? it means that there won't be regular monthly updates and bug fixes. This version enters the extended support period, which lasts until 2012. During this phase, only security and major bugs fixes will be applied.

MySQL 5.0 will still be available in the download pages for two more years, and any security updates will be released on those pages.

The previous version, MySQL 4.1, instead, will be retired completely. It has ended its extended period. As such, it will be removed from the download page, and also from the download archives. Next year, if you want …

SSD Market Continues to Heat Up

I had originally posted this on the 16th of September, but I had been changing hosting providers and such and it has managed to drop through the cracks.  So, if you didn’t see it before here it is..

I have long held the opinon that SSD (Solid State Disk) drives are going to be a major part of the database future. I just checked and I wrote a blog posting about them two years ago. I am not alone in this opinion.  It has long been realized that both I/O access speed and throughput increases have not kept pace with the increases in CPU power and the steadily decreasing cost of RAM. Storage space has increased, but both access speed and throughput performance have only had marginal increases in performance.

Solid state disks have long held the promise of lowered access speeds, especially when it comes to random access.  Even so, prices for SSD drives have been high and space small (compared to standard hard …

Comparison Between Solr And Sphinx Search Servers (Solr Vs Sphinx – Fight!)

In the past few weeks I've been implementing advanced search at Plaxo, working quite closely with Solr enterprise search server. Today, I saw this relatively detailed comparison between Solr and its main competitor Sphinx (full credit goes to StackOverflow user mausch who had been using Solr for the past 2 years). For those still confused, Solr and Sphinx are similar to MySQL FULLTEXT search, or for those even more confused, think Google (yeah, this is a bit of a stretch, I know).

Similarities

  • Both Solr and Sphinx satisfy all of your requirements. They're fast and designed to index and search large bodies of data efficiently.
  • Both have a long list of high-traffic sites …

MySQL a factor in EU's decision

I just read Björn Schotte's post on the activities of the European Union antitrust regulators concerning the intended takeover of Sun Microsystems by Oracle.

Björn mentions a news article that cites EU Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes saying that the commission has the obligation to protect the customers from reduced choice, higher costs or both. But to me, this bit is not the most interesting. Later on the article reads:


The Commission said it was concerned that the open source nature of Sun's MySQL database might not …
