MySQL Fabric – adding Scaling to MySQL
Employee +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

MySQL Fabric is a new framework that adds High Availability (HA) and/or scaling-out for MySQL. This is the second in a series of posts on the new MySQL Fabric framework; the first article (MySQL Fabric – adding High Availability to MySQL) explained how MySQL Fabric can deliver HA and then stepped through all of the steps to configure and use it.

This post focuses on using MySQL Fabric to scale out both reads and writes across multiple MySQL Servers. It starts with an introduction to scaling out (by partitioning/sharding data)

MySQL Connect 8 Days Away - Replication Sessions
Employee_Team +3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Following on from my post about MySQL Cluster sessions at the forthcoming Connect conference, its now the turn of MySQL Replication - another technology at the heart of scaling and high availability for MySQL.

Unless you've only just returned from a 6-month alien abduction, you will know that MySQL 5.6 includes the largest set of replication enhancements ever packaged into a single new release:

- Global Transaction IDs + HA utilities for self-healing cluster..(yes both automatic failover and manual switchover available!)

- Crash-safe slaves and binlog

- Binlog Group Commit and Multi-Threaded Slaves for high

SCALE 10x – there’s lots of MySQL there!
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I’m just about to get on a plane to head to my inaugural SCALE event. It’s their tenth year running!

In a world filled with NoSQL related media, its kind of nice to see that on Friday January 20 2012, we have a MySQL room right next to the PostgreSQL room (schedule). It is awesome to see that the track will have participation from Oracle, Monty Program Ab, and SkySQL Ab.

On Saturday for the main tracks, I’ve got a talk about the growing MySQL diaspora (just got larger this year in case you haven’t paid attention to the packaged up Galera product!). This one is a constant work in progress and I’m hoping to complete research closer towards March ’12.

Monty Program and SkySQL are also sharing a

Unlocking New Value from Web Session Management
Employee_Team +2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Join us for a live webinar (http://www.mysql.com/news-and-events/web-seminars/display-630.html) and download a new whitepaper (http://www.mysql.com/why-mysql/white-papers/mysql_wp_session_mngmnt.php) where we discuss how to realize new value from data collected during web session management.

Session management has long been a key component of any web infrastructure – enhancing the user browsing experience through improved reliability, reduced latency and tighter security.

Increasingly organizations are looking to unlock more value from session management to further improve user loyalty (i.e. making the web service more “sticky”) and improve monetization of web services.  There are two distinct developments that offer the promise of unlocking more value from session data:
1.    Provide highly personalized browsing experiences by

This is the 182nd edition of Log Buffer, the weekly review of database blogs. Make sure to read the whole edition so you do not miss where to submit your SQL limerick!

The commercialisation of Memcached
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There has been a significant increase in interest in the Memcached, the open source distributed memory object-caching system, in recent months, as a number of vendors look to exploit its popularity in Web 2.0 and social networking environments.

Like Hadoop, which has become the focus of a number of commercial plays, it would appear that the time is right for commercialization of Memcached. But what is it, here did it come from, and what are the chances for vendors to rake in serious cash? Here are the details.

What is it?
Pronounced mem-cash-dee, Memcached was originally created by Danga Interactive (the developer of LiveJournal, which was acquired by Six Apart in 2005) to speed up the performance of dynamic Web applications by alleviating database load. Memcached has become an industry standard for improving the performance of

Should you cache?

Should you use memcached? Should you just shard mysql more?


Memcached's popularity is expanding its use into some odd places. It's becoming an authoritative datastore for some large sites, and almost more importantly it's sneaking into the lowly web startup. This is causing some discussion.

Most of whom seem to be missing the point. In this post I attempt to explain my point of view for how memcached should really influence your bouncing baby startups, and even give some pointers to the big guys who might have trouble seeing the forest through the trees.

Using memcached does not scale your website! Entertain me,

Liveblogging: A Match Made in Heaven? The Social Graph and the Database
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Jeff Rothschild of Facebook’s “A Match Made in Heaven? The Social Graph and the Database”

Taking a look at the social graph and what it means for the database.

The social graph:

  • At it’s heart it’s about people and their connections.
  • Learning about people who are in your world.
  • Can be a powerful tool for accelerating the use of an application.

“The social graph has transformed a seemingly simple application such as photos into something tremendously more powerful.” We’re interested about what people are saying about us, and about our friends. Social applications are compelling.

Facebook users blew through the estimate for 6 months of storage in 6 weeks. It is serving 250,000 photos per second at peak time, not
