Cloud Computing Ideal for Shared-Disk Databases
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Cloud computing is disrupting many aspects of computing. One need only witness the manner in which online applications like Google Docs and Salesforce.com are disrupting entrenched competitors. Soon, cloud computing will significantly disrupt the database market, for the reasons explained below.

One of the most powerful arguments in technology is the price/performance ratio. Significant declines in price or significant increases in performance can result in disruption. When you get both price declines and performance increases, you get significant disruption. This is exactly what is coming to the database market.

The Past
Moore’s Law enabled the CPU to process data faster than the hard disk drive could get the data to the CPU. Because getting data to the CPU was the bottleneck, the database that solved that bottleneck would have a performance

Red Hat’s organic growth opportunities
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We reported recently on Red Hat’s revenue growth and deferred revenue. One of the things I have been looking at recently is the slowdown in Red Hat’s growth in recent years, and the opportunities that the company has to improve that growth.

For some perspective it is worth noting that while Red Hat’s revenue has been growing steadily:

The rate of growth has been in decline for some time:

Microsoft contributes to Linux kernel: a CAOS Theory Q&A
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Microsoft has announced that it is to contribute code to the Linux kernel development effort under the GNU General Public License (GPL) v2. What on earth does it all mean? Here’s our take on the situation. With thanks to Jay Lyman for his contribution to the following:

Q. This is a joke, right?

A. Not at all, although if any announcement is better suited to the image above, we can’t think of one. Microsoft has announced that it is going to contribute code to Linux under the GPLv2.

Q. What code is Microsoft

Dear Oracle,
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post titled Dear IBM , I was too late .. I was on holliday last week when people started sending me text messages , such as .. "Game Over MySQL , Long live Ingress" or "No Eclipse for IBM", etc ...

I had ideas regarding the future of certain Sun products at IBM, now the game has changed .. it'ss how they will live on at Oracle :)

Similar Questions arise .. like indeed the future of MySQL, the future of Solaris etc ...

So regarding the future of MySQL , I don't worry at all, on the contrary ..
Oracle tried buying mysql before they already have Innodb .. they didn't kill it .. the MySQL offering is complementary to the Oracle offering, now they can tackle both markets.
And as already mentionned when writing my IBM letter ..


As for MySQL, Jeremey has some

MySQL Conf 2009 Preview: Scalability and HA Tutorial
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Like most people, and with just over a week to go before the conference, I’m putting the finishing touchs on my various presentations.

First up for me, on Monday afternoon, is my tutorial: Scale Up, Scale Out, and High Availability: Solutions and Combinations.

What will be doing?

Very simply: Looking at every potential solution for maximum scalability and availability for your database environment.

If you are attending, be prepared to:

  • Expand your mind as we think about scaling up.
  • Expand your horizons as we think about scaling out.
  • Divide and conquer, as we think about high-availability.

We’re not not hands on in this session – but I will expect you to be brains on!
