It's that time of the year again: yes, Oracle Open World is coming up and with that I'll be travelling to San Francisco. New for this year is that we are part of the main Open World event and therefore have our own MySQL Central. Here you will have the opportunity of meeting many of the engineers behind MySQL, discuss technical problems you have, and also learn some about how we look at the future of the MySQL ecosystem.
This year, me and Narayanan Venkateswaran will be presenting two sessions:
- Elastic Scalability in MySQL Fabric with OpenStack (Thursday, Oct 2, 1:15 PM-2:00 PM in Moscone South, 252)

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!

PC World has written a post with this title(*) about the upcoming MySQL Connect conference and references the Percona Live conference and an official Percona comment. As this is not syndicated in Planet MySQL I encourage you to read the full article.
This is the MySQL conference to get technical presentations by the many great Oracle/MySQL technical staff who will not be in attendance at Percona Live. There will also be a strong community presence in speaking at Oracle Connect in September. While Oracle was organizing a dedicated MySQL event in April for the community with all vendors including Percona to replace the conference dropped by long term partner O’Reilly (kudos …[Read more]
Many database management tasks become difficult as you move from millions of rows and gigabytes of data to billions of rows and terabytes of data. Such tasks include ingesting data while maintaining indexes; changing schemas without downtime; and supporting connections, replication, and backup. For some scaling problems (connections and replication), MySQL® is better than most of the competition. For others, such as indexing, schema changes, and backup, MySQL has typically been harder to use. Fortunately, the tasks MySQL does well are in its core, whereas the tasks that are more difficult can be solved with storage engine plug-ins.
I recently gave a talk at Oracle Open World 11, a copy of which can be found here. This presentation discusses how MySQL’s storage engines have recently made dramatic progress in large database manageability.
A list of …[Read more]
