I was talking with Todd Hoff recently over at High Scalability about a trend I’ve seen of late. ME: I really liked this post by Zoli Kahan from Clay.io.  AWS, cloudflare, docker, haproxy, mysql, mongo, memcache, ansible.  They use just about every technology being talked about these days.   Todd: Yah, that’s why I asked […]

Mac OS X: The Love Affair Is Over
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Like a lot of developers I started using a MacBook Pro around the time of Tiger.  I instantly loved it:  simple, fast, and virtually no system administration overhead. The genius of OS X was that it never got in the way. You opened the box, pulled out the machine, and got to work. It had a great user interface, excellent  development tools (Eclipse in my case) and the command utilities like ssh, rsync, and bash worked seamlessly with Linux systems.

Well, that was then and this is now. Starting with Lion I began to spend an increasing amount of time fighting OS X instead of getting work done. I'm now using Mavericks and have not seen much improvement, in fact quite the contrary. Here are just a few of the problems after the Lion to Mavericks upgrade:
  • Spotlight indexes destroyed; need 2 days to regenerate
  • AppleMail access

Introducing Data Fabric Design for Commodity SQL Databases
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down
Data management is undergoing a revolution.  Many businesses now depend on data sets that vastly exceed the capacity of DBMS servers.  Applications operate 24x7 in complex cloud environments using small and relatively unreliable VMs.  Managers need to act on new information from those systems in real-time. Users want constant and speedy access to their data in locations across the planet.

It is tempting to think popular SQL databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL have no place in this new world.  They manage small quantities of data, lack scalability features like parallel query, and have weak availability models.  One reaction is to discard them and adopt alternatives like Cassandra or MongoDB.  Yet open source SQL databases have tremendous strengths:  simplicity, robust transaction support, lightning fast operation, flexible

We have started a new series of webinars at Continuent that we call Tungsten University.  They provide education on Tungsten clustering and replication in handy one-hour chunks.  These are not sales pitches.  Our goal is to provide accessible education about setting up and operating Tungsten without any marketing fluff.

The first Tungsten University webinar entitled "Configure & provision Tungsten clusters" will take place on Thursday January 17th at 10:00 PST.  It will show you how to set up a cluster in Amazon EC2.  There will be a repeat on January 22nd at 15:00 GMT.  We usually record webinars, so you can look at them later as well.
