Background: SkySQL is a distributed company. Nearly all of us work from home. To be productive, we need to emulate the best aspects of collaborating as if we were working next to one another. Given that nearly all of us had worked under similar distributed conditions at MySQL AB, we knew what we were getting into when we were founded. Obviously, we wanted to learn from our past experiences when making our choices for tools and processes.

It unlikely matters to you, but it does to me: My inbox is down to zero. That is, both my two inboxes are empty. I get work email to my @skysql.com address and private email to my @arno.fi, both of which have been suffering from bad email habits.

This was evident while visiting LinuxCon/CloudOpen in San Diego a few weeks ago, where I spoke about high availability solutions for MySQL. Most cloud sessions were highly attended, and I could sense an excitement in the air with regards to the cloud. It was also evident, however, that there is only a small percentage of people today truly taking advantage of the cloud. It seems that despite all the excitement, there is a large portion of potential users who don't know how to use the cloud, or what the benefits and potential …

But there is something missing. I know something is not part of this picture, but I can't figure out what it is.
At the end of keynotes and pane,l I turn to the exhibitors area, an approx 800 sq ft., 50% occupied by Oracle. At the bottom left corner stands my answer.

When You’re Ready for the Cloud, SkySQL Will Be There To Help You Make the Most of It
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

When SkySQL opened its doors two years ago, we purposely set out with the goal to build trusted and value-for-money services for users of MySQL and MariaDB databases. We focused on offering a quality alternative for those deploying open source systems - and we feel that we have succeeded. Our plan was to build a service business and customer base that will create a strong platform on which to develop our own products in collaboration with key customers. Red Hat is the only other successful start-up that I am aware of having taken a similar approach of first building a successful services business before …

Look! You can see the heart beating!
In case you are wondering, no, nobody in the family is expecting another baby…
