When the Innovator's Dilemma hit the MySQL World
+2 Vote Up -5Vote Down

What’s the connection between databases and fruit flies?
Some of you may be familiar with the bestseller in business literature The Innovator's Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail, by Harvard professor Clayton Christensen. In his book, Prof. Christensen compared disk drives to fruit flies. The comparison relates to the rapid changes that disrupted the disk drive industry for decades. That disruption is compared to the rapid changes that take place to fruit flies that live only for few hours, and for this reason researchers can study and analyse their behaviour.

Merging 5.6 test cases and thoughts on feature deprecation in MariaDB 10.0
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MariaDB 10 is nearing GA, and it makes sense to make sure that the test suite from MySQL 5.6 is merged into MariaDB 10. Svoj is doing a lot of this work, and then we like to look at features, especially ones that are deprecated upstream. We don’t do that on blogs, but on the maria-developers mailing list.

I bring to your attention: Intermediate status for test cases merge. We see that INSERT DELAYED and SHOW PROFILE for example are deprecated in MySQL 5.6. The …

A Close Encounter with MaxScale
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down


MaxScale is the new proxy server from the SkySQL/MariaDB team. It provides Connection Load Balancing (CLB) and Statement Load Balancing (SLB) out of the box. This post is a [relatively] quick “how to” install, configure and test SLB with the read/write splitting module.

Step 1 - Server preparationIf you do not have many HW resources, you may run everything on a single Linux instance, but the best way to test MaxScale is to use at least 4 servers: one for MaxScale and for the client apps, one as Master and two as slaves - so, 4 in total. In this post I am going a bit further, I will use 5 servers:
Max 0 - For client apps …

It can be a bright 2014
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down


In many parts of the MySQL world, whether you have users, developers or administrators of MySQL, the season holidays are for family, relax, prayers, travel, or they are simply a moment where you can enjoy what you like or care most about.

For me, this time is dedicated to my family, but also to deeper thoughts around the strategies to adopt in short and long term. My work nowadays, as the work of many others, is ruled by quick decisions, by the "time to market” - whatever “market" means in a specific context. Decisions must be made in meetings that are time-boxed in one hour or even less. In the end, you accumulate so much work and high …

5.6, 10... Why Would You Care?
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down


Sitting at the Hilton in San Francisco, listening to the MySQL Connect opening Keynotes, sparks interesting thoughts. Thoughts about the future of MySQL, the Oracle stewardship, the MariaDB alternative and the advantage of the solutions provided by the MySQL Ecosystem.
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. 
The small …
