The state of the MySQL ecosystem
+1 Vote Up -2Vote Down

I’ll be on a whistle-stop tour of California next week, including two presentations at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo.

On day one at 1:20pm I’ll be presenting CAP Theorem: Two out of three ain’t right, in which I will be challenging the popular ‘two out of three’ explanation of CAP Theorem, examining the evidence from a variety of experts, including Dr Eric Brewer.

Then on day three at 9:00am I’m very honoured to be providing a keynote presentation, The State of the MySQL Ecosystem.

Here’s an overview of the presentation:

Forthcoming webinar: Strategies for scaling MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

On February 28 at 1pm EST I’ll be taking part in a webinar, sponsored by ScaleBase, on strategies for scaling MySQL.

Scalability is one of the primary drivers we’ve seen for database users considering alternatives to traditional relational databases. That could mean adopting an entirely new database for new projects or – more likely for existing applications – looking at various strategies for improving the scalability of an existing database.

During the webinar I will be joined by Doron Levari and Paul Campaniello, both from ScaleBase, which enables applications to scale without disruption to the existing infrastructure. We’ll be discussing, amongst other things:

  • Scaling-out your MySQL databases

NoSQL on MySQL: stating the obvious
+4 Vote Up -1Vote Down

Some of the NoSQL vendors seemed to have stirred up a mild controversy with their reactions to the launch of NoSQL access to InnoDB in MySQL 5.6 and their suggestions that NoSQL access is only a part of the NoSQL story.

Mark Leith, software development senior manager at Oracle has described the criticism as laughable and Oracle’s director of MySQL product marketing, Mat Keep, accused the NoSQL vendors of “trying to stand on the shoulders of giants” (which is pretty ironic given we are talking about Oracle adding NoSQL capabilities to one of its databases).

In any case I don’t see what the fuss is all about.

Sure, Couchbase and DataStax laid it on a bit thick, but these are corporate blog posts – it

Neither fish nor fowl: the rise of multi-model databases
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

One of the most complicated aspects of putting together our database landscape map was dealing with the growing number of (particularly NoSQL) databases that refuse to be pigeon-holed in any of the primary databases categories.

I have begun to refer to these as “multi-model databases” in recognition of the fact that they are able to take on the characteristics of multiple databases. In truth though there are probably two different groups of products that could be considered “multi-model”:

True multi-model databases that have been designed specifically to serve multiple data models and use-cases

Examples include:
FoundationDB, which is being designed to

Your chance to define the “state of MySQL”
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

We are very honoured to have been asked to give a “state of the MySQL” keynote presentation at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo in April.

While this will not be in any way an official “state of the dolphin” presentation, I think it is fitting given the expansion of the MySQL ecosystem that the Percona Live event includes an independent perspective on the state of MySQL. The full title of the presentation – MySQL, YourSQL, NoSQL, NewSQL – the state of the MySQL ecosystem – reflects that.

We want to present an independent perspective on the health of the MySQL ecosystem in 2013, drawing on our research and analysis, as well as the views

451 Research’s 2013 Database survey is now live at http://bit.ly/451db13 investigating the current use of database technologies, including MySQL, NoSQL and NewSQL, as well as traditional relation and non-relational databases.

The aim of this survey is to identify trends in database usage, as well as changing attitudes to MySQL following its acquisition by Oracle, and the competitive dynamic between MySQL and other databases, including NoSQL and NewSQL technologies.

There are just 15 questions to answer, spread over five pages, and the entire survey should take less than ten minutes to complete.

All individual responses are of course

Got open source cloud storage? Red Hat buys Gluster
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Red Hat’s $136m acquisition of open source storage vendor Gluster marks Red Hat’s biggest buy since JBoss and starts the fourth quarter with a very intersting deal. The acquisition is definitely good for Red Hat since it bolsters its Cloud Forms IaaS and OpenShift PaaS technology and strategy with storage, which is often the starting point for enterprise and service provider cloud computing deployments. The acquisition also gives Red Hat another weapon in its fight against VMware, Microsoft and others, including OpenStack, of which Gluster is a member (more on that further down). The deal is also good for Gluster given the sizeable price Red Hat is paying for the provider of open source, software-based, scale-out storage for unstructured data and also as validation of both open source and software in

MySQL 5.4 improves scalability

Somewhat overshadowed in last week's headlines was news about the forthcoming MySQL 5.4 release, internally known as "Summit." While MySQL Engineering team was somewhat heads-down last year finalizing MySQL 5.1, this new version demonstrates a dramatically shorter release cycle by focusing on just two key issues: performance and scale.

Oracle wins 'Acquirer of the Year' award at MySQL Conference
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

It was a standing room only crowd at the MySQL Conference and Expo this morning in Santa Clara. With more than 2,000 attendees, this is the largest crowd the conference has ever drawn, which is saying something given that most conferences are projecting much lower numbers with the economic downturn. Perhaps open source is counter-cyclical after all and will continue to do well in tough times.
