It has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for us since the Percona Live London posting. The team has expanded with two new DBAs, I was invided to give a talk on selected the Percona Live Conference & Expo 2013 in April and at the same time Spil Games is organizing the second MySQL User Group NL meeting on Friday February 22nd of February.

Why MySQL Quicksand?

Why MySQL Quicksand? Well, that’s easy enough: from experience I’ve learned that the margin between a fully functional MySQL database server and one that’s going into a grinding halt can be a very thin hairline. Getting it back to work may be a hell but it will, most of the time, be very possible to save your server.

Quicksand has the same trouble: it may appear to be quite sold, but a very small disturbance can cause a sudden decrease in viscosity and change it from solid to a liquid like substance. You will sink into it but, generally, not drown.

What will be posted here? Well not everything will be exclusively MySQL but mostly be related to it. You can expect warstories, brainstorms, reposts, links, etc.

My main goal is that whatever I post here will be useful for someone else.

Just started here…

Just started MySQL Quicksand and hopefully it will turn out to be something fruitful.

Why?

Well, I feel the urge to share some experience and willing to learn from the feedback.

What to expect here?

Well I do have a lot of warstories to share and tons of stuff that I try to find out when reading other peoples blogs… More stuff to come soon!
