groonga – fulltext search library for cloud & web

This is an incomplete fragment from 2011. Figure its worth publishing this now, considering MariaDB is likely to get groonga in the near future. The groonga team have released MariaDB 10.0.6 binaries as well. This is all part of the mroonga project.

These were my quick notes from the groonga talk at the O’Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2011. I haven’t tried it yet (and don’t know if it really is faster than Sphinx), but its something I definitely want to play with. Maybe even get a MariaDB tree going.

groonga is a fulltext search library for cloud & web.

groonga is easy to embed & is scalable. It is written in C.

Highly …

The SkySQL Reference Architecture

I have a bunch of notes from the O’Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2011, and I figure its about time I started blogging it. These are notes from the panel on the SkySQL Reference Architecture, led by Kaj Arno and Ivan Zoratti. The notes are raw (read their FAQ for more), and I talk a little bit about the SkySQL Configurator at the end (a tool I immediately used, and submitted some bugs/improvements for – 7 at last count, which I hear got fixed in the 0.02 release, which got pushed last night!).

There were 7 panelists. The MySQL world needs:

  • technical support
  • monitoring & administration tools

MySQL Conference Early Bird ends 31/03/2011

If you’ve been busy and haven’t registered yet, remember that early-bird pricing ends on 31/03/2011. From April 1-10, you’ll have to pay USD$100 more. A discount code for use (I think you save 20-25%): mys11fsd.

We’re full up in terms of the schedule. People are still asking for an opportunity to speak, and there are still opportunities in the Products & Services track. Please contact Yvonne Romaine at for more information on this.

Might I also suggest that if you want to speak and there’s no longer an opportunity, you submit a five-minute talk for the Ignite MySQL event. Even though submissions are now closed, contact Brian Aker — he’ll try and help …

Some keynote updates about The O’Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2011

A quick update on a few keynotes that the O’Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2011 managed to recently close:

  • The opening keynote, The State of the Dolphin, given by none other than Tomas Ulin, who is currently the VP of the MySQL Engineering team at Oracle. I am told that this is not just a “what’s new” and “what’s coming up”, as there will also be a Q&A session with an analyst, customer, and Tomas. You must not miss this on Tuesday morning at 9am, 12th April 2011.
  • On Thursday at 9.30am, we have The Next Decade in Data Management, a keynote given by Mike Olson, CEO of Cloudera. More and more I see people using …

O’Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2011 – register now to save!

Its that time of year again. The O’Reilly MySQL Conference & Expo 2011 happening April 11-14 2011, in Santa Clara, California. As co-chair this year with Brian Aker, I’m pretty excited at the content available. It is certainly more diverse and if you thought you knew everything about MySQL, remember you also want to learn about the ecosystem surrounding it.

No one just deploys MySQL standalone these days. There’s an ecosystem. Heck, even in the MySQL world, there is an ecosystem building out. Look at the schedule grid, and see how diverse things are. Yes, there are talks on CouchDB, PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Eucalyptus, OpenStack, “NoSQL” and more.

Looking at the theme, the ecosystem and beyond, it will give …
