The value of MySQL Support

Years ago when I worked for the MySQL Support organization at the original MySQL AB, we spoke about MySQL Support as insurance and focused on a value proposition similar to that of car insurance. For your car to be fully covered, you must purchase car insurance before the incident happens – in fact most places around the world require automobile insurance.

MariaDB 5.5 is now GA

Well, as you or may not have heard, MariaDB 5.5 (5.5.23) was declared GA last week!

It was only about 6-ish weeks ago that MariaDB 5.5 had been released as alpha, so the fact it’s already GA is excellent news for all MariaDB users (and MySQL 5.5 users looking to migrate).

Some of the 5.5 enhancements include:

  • Significantly more efficient thread pool, comparable in functionality to the closed source feature in MySQL Enterprise.
  • Non-blocking client API Library (MWL#192)
  • @@skip_replication option (MWL#234)
  • SphinxSE updated to version 2.0.4.
  • “extended keys” support for XtraDB and InnoDB
  • New INSTALL SONAME statement
  • New LIMIT ROWS EXAMINED optimization.
