Top Two Signs your MySQL Database is Maxing Out
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
One of the main responsibilities of any database administrator is to keep a close eye on how database performance is impacting size and storage. Decisions will have to be made on whether or not to make changes within the database structure or application itself, or to make the changes on the storage and resource side [...] Read More
Forthcoming webinar: Strategies for scaling MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On February 28 at 1pm EST I’ll be taking part in a webinar, sponsored by ScaleBase, on strategies for scaling MySQL.

Scalability is one of the primary drivers we’ve seen for database users considering alternatives to traditional relational databases. That could mean adopting an entirely new database for new projects or – more likely for existing applications – looking at various strategies for improving the scalability of an existing database.

During the webinar I will be joined by Doron Levari and Paul Campaniello, both from ScaleBase, which enables applications to scale without disruption to the existing infrastructure. We’ll be discussing, amongst other things:

  • Scaling-out your MySQL databases
  • New

Being successful like Pinterest without its DB adventures...
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I just came across this: "Scaling Pinterest and adventures in database sharding"  (http://gigaom.com/data/scaling-pinterest-and-adventures-in-database-sharding/)
"Pinterest has learned about scaling the way most popular sites do — the architecture works until one day it doesn’t"
Pinterest found out that "the architecture" is not scalable and they turned to development of a Scale Out mechanism also called Sharding.

I find it amazing that sharding, or in other words, the idea of "scale out by splitting and parallelizing data across shared-nothing commodity-hardware" is not supplied "out of the box" by "the architecture" (such as database, load-balancer, any other IT stuff). I'm wondering who was the one that

Calling all next gen app providers: Who’s got your back?
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Next gen app providers (and perhaps more specifically, database architects) are clamoring for database technologies that just work. At least, that’s the message we got from one of our newest customers: Mozilla. Earlier this month, we caught up with Sheeri Cabral, database architect at Mozilla and and overall MySQL rock star, to get the down-and-dirty on why [...] Read More

On the 8/16 I conducted a webinar titled: "Scale Up vs. Scale Out" (http://www.slideshare.net/ScaleBase/scalebase-webinar-816-scaleup-vs-scaleout):


ScaleBase Webinar 8.16: ScaleUp vs. ScaleOut from ScaleBase
The webinar was successful, we had many attendees and great participation in questions and answers throughout the session and in the end. Only after the webinar it only occurred to me that one specific graphic was missing from the webinar deck. It was occurred to me after answering

Impressions from Amazon's AWS Summit in NYC
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Yesterday (4/19) I attended the AWS Summit in NYC (http://aws.amazon.com/aws-summit-2012/nyc).

I'm a big fan and also a heavy user of AWS especially S3, EC2, and naturally, RDS. In every point in time I have several dozens of AWS machines running for me out there in the East region, and in some cases when we do some special benchmarks and tests, number of EC2 and RDS machines can easily reach 3-digit. As I said, I'm a fan...

A few quotes I was able to catch and document on my laptop, on my laps...:
"When you develop an app for facebook, you must be prepared (and be afraid) that to your party, not noone will show up, but everybody will show up!"
So true! Simple and true. We all want to succeed, to have success with our app. We have to think about scaling

So how can we scale databases?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
There are ways to scale databases, unfortunately some are limited, some introduce complexities, some are do not fit the cloud...

By scaling solution I mean a solutions that help me scale my existing environment, my existing RDBMS. Some magic or technology that will take my existing Oracle or MySQL for example, to the next level, without porting to a new DB engine/vendor and without completely recoding my app.

Let's try to organize things a bit in this very summarized table, just to get the hunch of it. I can't imagine to cover it all in 1 table or even 100 pages, but that should be a start of a meaningful discussion to continue in next posts:

Solution Scales reads? Scales writes? Scales data? Scales sessions? Cloud? Bottom line Scale-Up: faster HW, CPU, memory,

Applications come and go. Databases are here to scale.
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
In my heart, I'm a DBA, always was and always will be. People say I'm a database guy by the way I think, keep my car, and file my music and also bank statements... However I did great deal of development, design, architecture on the apps side. I (hope to) have some perspective.

Applications come and go. The second programming language I've ever learned and worked on was COBOL, some still say most of the world's lines of code are written in this language, maybe so, but anyway I since then have known and written in dozens of programming languages, from Assembly to Force.com, from Pascal to Delphi, from functional C to Object Oriented SmallTalk, C++, Java and , from compiled C/CGI to interpreted Perl, ASP and Ruby back to compiled node.js... My first applications ran on Main-Frame with green screen, later I created beautiful graphic
