At Yahoo, we manage a massive number of MySQL databases spread across multiple data centers.
We have thousands of databases and each database has many partitioned tables. In order to efficiently create and maintain partitions we developed a partition manager which automatically manages these for you with minimal pre configuration.
Today, we’re releasing MySQL Partition Manager. You can check out the code on GitHub.
We’re looking forward to interacting with the MySQL community and continue developing new features.
