OL 4 MySQL: Extending my VM’s root f/s online

Ok, so after all the things that have been announced @MySQLConnect, I’ve got to play around with them. First stop: space (no.. not ‘the final frontier’).

I need more space on my f/s to get installing. I was a bit of a scrooge when I created my Oracle Linux virtual machine, so now I’m paying the price.

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/vg_ol63uek01-LogVol01
                      7.1G  5.7G  1.1G  85% /

As I’m using Virtual Box, I’ve added a new SATA Controller vmdk of 10G, SATA Port 1 and then start it up.

fdisk -l

Will be able to identify the new & unused partition:

[root@ol63uek01 ~]# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 8589 MB, 8589934592 bytes
 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1044 cylinders
 Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
 Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
 I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
 Disk identifier: …

Let’s connect at MySQL Connect

Later this week I’m traveling to San Francisco to attend MySQL Connect – which looks like an exciting event to be at. I’m going to deliver two talks at this show, both on Sunday – MySQL Indexing Best Practices for MySQL 5.6 and Optimizing MySQL Configuration for MySQL 5.6. I will also be there for a Percona Toolkit BoF on Saturday and at our Booth (6004) during select expo hall hours.

What I’m looking forward to at this event the most is an update on MySQL technology both from Oracle’s engineering team as well as MySQL users. People from Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Paypal …

September: A busy month for MySQL events

Now with summer winding down and school back in session, we get into a very busy time with many great opportunities to discover more about MySQL with several excellent MySQL events.

At first I wanted to cover all autumn events here but if I did that this post would be far too long. So instead I’m focusing on a few wonderful MySQL events that I’m going to be involved with in September.

In a few short days we’re running Percona University at Washington, D.C. This free event on September 12 provides a great opportunity to learn about latest developments in the MySQL ecosystem as we at Percona see it. I personally will be speaking about …

Oracle OpenWorld 2013

I registered yesterday for Oracle OpenWorld 2013, and I’ll look forward to seeing friends there. Having worked in the Oracle 12c beta for a year, I’ll be interested in the presentations. Also, hearing more about Java 7 at JavaOne. On the downside, I’m missing MySQL Connect this year.

Cloud computing offers many possibilities, and container and pluggable databases are a great solution. We’ve two new acronyms with the Oracle 12c release. A containerized database is a CDB, and a pluggable database is a PDB. I’m looking forward to seeing more about the provisioning of PDBs during the conference. If you’re new to the changes, check out CDBs and PDBs in Chapter 17 in the …

Last week to submit for MySQL Connect!

The Call for Papers for MySQL Connect 2013 will close this Friday.  This is the premier Oracle-sponsored MySQL conference, and a great opportunity for community users and customers alike to connect with Oracle staff from engineering, support, consulting and other organizations, as well as community partners and peers.  Maybe you’d like to talk about your experiences integrating one of the new MySQL 5.6 features.  Or maybe you’d like to share best practices you’ve developed for integrating with Hadoop.  Perhaps you’ve extended MySQL and want to tell the community about it.  Take advantage of this opportunity and submit your proposal this week!

2012, the Best Year for MySQL (...so far, but more to come)

It's the end of the year and, before the world ends ;-) , I feel the pressure to follow up on last year's article "2011, a great year for MySQL in Review". I'll adopt a similar format and mention things in context, covering products, marketing, momentum, etc. at a high level. I may have missed something and I hope my colleagues will contribute to the list.

I really do think it's been the best year for MySQL so far... well, at least since when I signed my contract with MySQL AB at the end of 2007. We're just at the beginning of our journey and I wish to the MySQL family, to our community and ecosystem an even better 2013!
