MySQL Presentations from FOSDEM 2013

FOSDEM 2013

The Free and Open source Software Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM) is a two-day event organized by volunteers to promote the widespread use of Free and Open Source software.

I attended for the first time over the weekend and was really impressed by the number of people there, the energy and the quality of the content. The event really lives up to it’s name and is very developer-focused.

In the end, I got the opportunity to make 2 presentations. The first is a general introduction to MySQL Cluster….



The second illustrates how you can realise the benefits promised by NoSQL data stores wihtout losing the consistency and flexibility of relational databases…



Impressions of FOSDEM 13

FOSDEM 13 is now over, I am on my way home and I would like to share some thoughts sparkled by the intense atmosphere that I have lived in these two days in Brussels. I have to admit, I was tempted to skip FOSDEM this year: the last 3 weeks have been crazily busy and I travelled a lot, leaving my family alone for too long. But now I am glad I made the effort.

Moving from MySQL to Couchbase

Before moving to Couchbase and working with NoSQL technology I had for years been a MySQL user. Making that leap from MySQL to NoSQL requires a number of changes, not least of which to the way you structure your data and then query it. 

I’ve tried to distil the first part of that process down into a simpler form and steps in a new blog post oat the Couchbase blog http://blog.couchbase.com/how-move-mysql-couchbase-server-20-part-1


FOSDEM 2013, another nice open source event in Europe!

Searching document stores in 2013: from 1983 to SQL:2003 in a blink?

I love the new NoSQL systems: more choices! After years of RDBMS dominance there are hundrets of NoSQL systems offering a wide range of data models, data distribution strategies and interfaces. Polyglot persistence describes the market change. I am most fascinated by document stores: nested data and data distribution go hand-in-hand. Nested data, finally. And, for those who like it: schemaless or even schemafree. Maybe something to learn for MySQL? But their search capabilities… A word or two on SQL (SELECT … FROM … WHERE – SFW) and nested data.

Learn from NoSQL document stores

The classical relational data model requests all data to be in …

Our 2013 Database survey is now live

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 confidential. The results will be published as part of a major research report due during Q2.

Move over Marcia: Top Ten for 2012

Well, it’s that time of the year again for top ten lists. There have been many versions showing up on the web the last few days, including Time Magazine’s “Top 10 Everything of 2012″ list, with 55 wide ranging lists!

Last year we started using Google Analytics to see what content for blogs was most popular on Tokutek.com and generated a 2011 top ten list, ending up with a few surprises.  This year saw spikes in some interesting areas as well, including flash performance, NASA and Big Data, and MongoDB.

Without further adieu, here is the top ten list for 2012:

10. Announcing TokuDB v6.1 – This release included better overall performance and brought …

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!
