What technologies are you running alongside MySQL?
+2 Vote Up -0Vote Down

In many environments MySQL is not the only technology used to store in-process data.

Quite frequently, especially with large-scale or complicated applications, we use MySQL alongside other technologies for certain tasks of reporting, caching as well as main data-store for portions of application.

What technologies for data storage and processing do you use alongside MySQL in your environment? Please feel free to elaborate in the comments about your use case and experiences!

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

Disrupting IT with Open Source & Cloud
+0 Vote Up -2Vote Down

A couple of weeks ago I gave a presentation at the Apache Lucene Eurocon in Prague. It was a good conference focused on Lucene/Solr open source search technology and sponsored by Lucid Imagination.  

I've posted the bulk of the presentation below.  (I omitted a couple of slides that were MySQL specific.) Even though it was a technical conference, I got positive feedback from the attendees and organizers that the information was useful in helping folks think about where to focus their efforts.  

The slides have been posted to Box.net and are shown using their new "embedded

NoSQL options

The NoSQL event in New York had a number of presentations on non relational technologies including of Hadoop, MongoDB and CouchDB.

Coming historically from a relational background of 20 years with Ingres, Oracle and MySQL (http://mysql.com) I have been moving my focus towards non relational data store. The most obvious and well used today is memcached, a non persistent distributed key/value pair store. There are a number of persistent key/value stores in the marketplace, Tokyo Cabinet, Project Voldemort and Redis to name a

Calling Java code in MySQL
Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This post is a follow-up to my talk at JavaDeus 2008 where I showed how you can make use of Lucene inside of MySQL using an experimental branch and some triggers and stored procedures.

Since the process is not entirely obvious and the branch is very experimental, I thought it would be a nice thing to put it online. It’s pretty amazing with how little code (in Java and otherwise) you can implement a working full-text search engine that simply doesn’t get into your way :)

Note: Be advised that the MySQL server we will build is likely to crash at times. Do not use it in production! And of course, always have a safe backup of important data.

This first part will cover the basics on how the get the necessary foundation in place,

MySQL Conference and Expo 2008, Day Three
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Here’s a rundown of Thursday (day 3) of the MySQL Conference and Expo. This day’s sessions were much more interesting to me than Wednesday’s, and in fact I wanted to go to several of them in a single time slot a couple of times.

Inside the PBXT Storage Engine

This session was, as it sounds, a look at the internals of PBXT, a transactional storage engine for MySQL that has some interesting design techniques. I had been looking forward to this session for a while, and Paul McCullagh’s nice explanations with clear diagrams were a welcome aid to understanding how PBXT works. Unlike some of the other storage engines, PBXT is being developed in full daylight, with an emphasis on community involvement and input. (Indeed, I may be contributing to it myself, in order to make its monitoring

mysql's plugin parser looks neat
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With the introduction of mysql 5.1, they have introduced full text plugins which allows people to write their own parsers.

Now I’m not an expert in Lucene or this new feature, but it seems that both of these products are heading for the same point, One of the benefits I have often heard touted was that lucene had better relevancy, while mysql was faster. (no I don’t have any numbers to back this up.. maybe when my Sun Fire comes I’ll try loading this up as my ‘benchmark’). So it will be interesting to actually do some experimentation to see if you could get the best of both worlds.

maybe someone can sponsor me to re-tool nutch to work with a pure mysql back-end (Brian/Zack ?? are you reading this? does MySQL want to give me a grant? :-)
