This Week in Data: Thoughts from Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles

Welcome to a new weekly column on the Percona blog. My name is Colin Charles, Percona Chief Evangelist, and I have been involved in MySQL, MariaDB Server and the open source community for over a decade. Now I am at Percona, and this is my weekly column.

When you start a column, you have ask yourself what you’ll be writing about. Keeping the focus on the reader is what’s crucial. With this in mind, I plan to cover happenings, pointers and maybe even musings in this column. It’s August, and while many are away on summer vacations, there’s still plenty happening in the database world. So maybe this will be a little like the now-defunct, Weekly MySQL News. It will be broader than just MySQL, however, and focus on open source databases (after all, Percona’s mission is to …

Blog Poll: What Operating System Do You Run Your Development Database On?

In this post, we’ll use a blog poll to find out what operating system you use to run your development database servers.

In our last blog poll, we looked at what OS you use for your production database. Now we would like to see what you use for your development database.

As databases grow to meet more challenges and expanding application demands, they must try and get the maximum amount of performance out of available resources. How they work with an operating system can affect many variables, and help or hinder performance. The operating system you use for your database can impact consumable choices (such as hardware and memory). The operating system you use can also impact your choice of database engine as well (or vice versa).

When new projects, new applications or services or testing new architecture …

All about Linkbench

Linkbench is a benchmark for social graph transaction processing. It lead to a paper, a post, benchmark client in Java and many blog posts from me. As a bonus, I also got to know the person who did the work for it - thanks Tim. The benchmark client has moved to my Github account because the upstream project has been archived (no comment). The repo is not active but someone recently added support for Postgres, someone else added …
