Percona Live Santa Clara 2018 update: tutorials have been announced. The committee rated over 300+ talks, and easily 70% of the schedule should go live next week as well.

FOSDEM

FOSDEM was truly awesome last week. From a Percona standpoint, we had a lot of excellent booth traffic (being outside of the PostgreSQL room on Saturday, and not too far out from the MySQL room on Sunday). We gave away bottle openers — …

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

Still on Meltdown/Spectre, this time MariaDB Corporation has published Meltdown Vulnerability Impact On MariaDB Server – interesting the comparison between glibc/tcmalloc.

Premier Open Source Database Conference Call for Papers closing January 12 2018

The call for papers for Percona Live Santa Clara 2018 was extended till January 12 2018. This means you still have time to get a submission in.

Topics of interest: MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL & other open source databases. Don’t forget all the upcoming databases too (there’s a long list at db-engines).

I think to be fair, in the catch all “other”, we should also be thinking a lot about things like containerisation (Docker), Kubernetes, Mesosphere, the cloud (Amazon AWS RDS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud SQL, etc.), analytics …

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 21: Looking Back on 2017 in the Open Source Database Community

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

The end of the year is upon us, and this column is being penned a little earlier than usual as I enjoy a quick bout of wrapping up for the year.

We’ve had a lot of things happen in the database world. It’s clear that open source is everywhere, the cloud is large, and we’ve seen a lot of interesting movements in our MySQL world, from the standpoint of corporate contributions too. GitHub continues to enhance Orchestrator, and gh-ost keeps on getting better; Facebook has ensured MyRocks is now mainstream in both MariaDB Server and Percona Server for MySQL distributions; Alibaba Cloud and Tencent have been contributing to make MariaDB Server better. …

This Week in Data with Colin Charles 20: cPanel changes strategy, Percona Live CFP extended

Join Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

I think the biggest news from last week was from cPanel – if you haven’t already read the post, please do – on Being a Good Open Source Community Member: Why we hesitated on MySQL 5.7. cPanel anticipated MariaDB being the eventual replacement for MySQL, based on movements from Red Hat, Wikipedia and Google. The advantage focused on transparency around security disclosure, and the added features/improvements. Today though, “MySQL now consistently matches or outpaces MariaDB when it comes to development and releases, which in turn is increasing the demand on us for providing those upgraded versions of MySQL by our users.” And …
