Some use-cases for MMM for MySQL
+4 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In this blog, I would like to mark myself as a power-user of MMM.  For more then 3 years now I'm engineering high-traffic websites and none of them was a small project. In the beginning I worked behind the livejasmin.com project (warning: NSFW!) which is an Alexa top100 site and now I'm working at ustream.tv which is in the top500 (so far). In this area, your greatest enemy is downtime. Thousands of users want to see your dynamic content by executing thousand of queries against your MySQL servers and what they don't have is the patience and they don't even tolerate critical security-upgrades. In both sites I mentioned above there is no point in time during …

Cluster + Dolphin DX = Sweet!
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

At a customer I have had the opportunity to work with some really state of the art equipment.

The customer is in the online gaming industry and we are building a platform based on MySQL Cluster where we are consolidating a number of applications. Workload is mainly inserts, updates, pk reads, and index scans (quite frequent), and a few joins. The cluster handles the transient data (current working set), and is replicating to a long term data store (following this approach), and we are also feeding other back-end support systems …

I’m looking for Open Source Software that helps me keep track of my 100,000+ digital pictures. I wrote specs on dreamt-up software called “Robfat” (for rename, order, backup, find, archive, tag) as I want to remove excess fat from my …

Do as the Swedish Police: Save money on Open Source!
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting with Per-Ola Sjöswärd, executive IT strategist at the Swedish National Police. That organisation is already way ahead of most of us when it comes to Open Source adoption. But they have higher ambitions still.

The Rikspolisstyrelsen logotype is on many Sun slides, as an example of an “Enterprise 2.0″ type MySQL customer. Besides sounding cool, the ”Enterprise 2.0″ name is supposed to portray what all the organisations in that group have in common: They’re generic enterprises in any industry, and …

Football galore — Inter using MySQL 5.1
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Within minutes after Finland was just about to win 3:2 over Germany in the football world championship qualifications (but it ended 3:3), I got a bit of consolation for myself, my dual-citizenship son cheering for Finland, and my fellow countrymen using MySQL:

We have the next MySQL 5.1 Use Case article live, and it’s about FC Inter Milan. No Finns playing there (but stars such as Ibrahimovic, Materazzi, Luis Figo, and Adriano). And, from a MySQL perspective, the interesting point is that …
