Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014: Things I’m looking forward to
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

The Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo 2014 is just two months away. I’m very excited about this year’s event which continues our tradition of open technical discussions and inviting all parties to the table.

We have a great amount of technical talks from Oracle – I’m especially excited about future-focused talks shedding some light about what to expect in MySQL 5.7 and beyond. This content is best covered by developers actually designing the system and writing the code. We also have great coverage of MySQL

Why software patents are evil

Mark Cuban is no fool. A tech billionaire, the no-nonsense owner of the Dallas Mavericks is just the sort of person you'd expect to value software patents. So the title of his blog post this Tuesday, "I hope Yahoo crushes Facebook in its patent suit," may not look out of place to you.

A Glance at MySQL MHA
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Yoshinori Matsunobu sparked some interest recently when he posted about his MySQL MHA HA solution, and there has been some discussion of it internally at Yahoo compared with the standard we currently have.  

Full disclosure:  I haven’t read every bit of the documentation or tried it out yet, so I apologize in advance to Yoshinori if I mistakenly represent his hard work. 

I see a lot of great ideas in Yoshinori’s release, it seems to focus on two main problems:

  • A process to monitor an active master and perform a failover when it fails
  • The bit that finds the most “caught-up” slave and distributes relay log contents

    Playing around with Galera 0.8pre
    +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Currently I’m loading 100 TPCC warehouses in a 2-node galera cluster that I got up and running in maybe 5 minutes.  Kudos to the Codership guys for making it super easy to download a single tgz and get evaluating quickly.

    Galera, for those not in the know, is a “cluster of mysql instances”.  Unlike MySQL Cluster (http://www.mysql.com/products/cluster/), which is really just a storage engine of clustered data storage nodes.  Galera is hacked into both the main MySQL engine and Innodb (which is the only storage engine it supports).  Galera is fully synchronous, so commits on any MySQL node are applied everywhere in the cluster, at commit (and before the client can proceed).  Writes are actually scalable in Galera, to a point, by adding more data nodes because the replication between nodes is RBR, hence each data node doesn’t have to assume the CPU expense of processing the SQL

    MySQL Master HA at Yahoo
    +13 Vote Up -0Vote Down
    I was asked to write a blog post about MySQL High Availability at Yahoo, particularly for writes. Our standard practice is not particularly high-tech, but we've been using it for over 4 years now and it has become a company-wide standard with a few exceptions.   Let me start by saying that at Yahoo! we consider a datacenter as a Single Point of Failure (SPoF). We build and manage many of our own datacenters, and we still don't assume they are invulnerable. How many people can attest to the fact that however to configure your racks, how many redundant switches, power supplies, drives, etc. you buy, if your leased datacenter has power or network issues, you are at their mercy.   -->

    This week I'm changing gears of my life. On Friday (5th September), I  yodeled and bled purple for one last time. It has been 2 years and 8 months when I first joined Yahoo! directly from college during which the size of Yahoo!, here at Bangalore, has almost tripled. Definitely the most rewarding and learning time for me as I worked and interacted with some really cool, supportive and intelligent people.

    It was really a difficult decision to consider as I had no reasons to leave. It took me some time to convince myself. The only reason probably is that I got an opportunity to do something that always wanted to, that is working for a startup :).

    Starting Monday I'm joining mKhoj, an Indian startup in the "Mobile Advertising marketplace" here at Bangalore. Looks like exciting times ahead.

    Top 10 Reasons Why Digsby ROCKS
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    If you haven't heard of Digsby yet, you have probably been living in some kind of a virtual cave or have no friends. Digsby is a multi-network instant messenger application, similar to Trillian, Pidgin (GAIM), or Miranda. I said 'similar', so what makes Digsy special? Reviews I read so far don't give the real reasons and don't dive into the features in depth. Instead, you get a standard load of marketing BS and in the end to you, the user, Digsby may end up being "yet another IM program." Some reviews describe certain features, but so far I haven't seen one that highlighted THE MAIN REASON why Digsby is different. And may I preface it with: finally somebody got a clue. I never before wanted to write about any other IM client,
