Open Source Database Conference CFP Deadline Sunday January 27

This year at our Open Source Database Conference we’re celebrating open source database technologies that don’t fit into the MySQL®, MongoDB®, MariaDB®, or PostgreSQL realms by featuring them in their very own track. The glamorously-named Other Open Source Databases track! As unbiased champions of open source database solutions, we embrace all flavors of open source database, and pride ourselves at presenting one of the biggest events dedicated to any and all OSDBs.

Another innovation this year is the introduction of a Java programming for open source databases track. Maybe that would be of interest?

The conference takes place at the end of May in Austin, a fantastic place to visit, and state capital of Texas.

Log buffer #558: a carnival of vanities for DBAs

This log buffer edition overs cloud, Oracle, PostgreSQL and MySQL.

Cloud

On December 4, 2018 Microsoft’s Azure Database for Open Sources announced the general availability of MariaDB. This blog intends to share some guidance and best practices for alerting on the most commonly monitored metrics for the service.

Technology allows manufacturers to generate more data than traditional systems and users can digest. Predictive analytics, enabled by big data and cloud technologies, can take advantage of this data and provide new and unique insights into the health of manufacturing equipment and processes.

Percona Live 2019: Committee Announced and a Short Extension

We had a great response to our call for papers, thank you! However great we believe having the conference in Austin, TX will be, moving to a new area of the US is still a leap of faith until we see the numbers. So we’re thankful that so many of you continue to support and take part in our Open Source Database Conference. We have great plans for the event going forward, and look forward to sharing them with you.

In fact, one new initiative is already underway. Instead of having one relatively small committee that reviews all of the papers for all tracks, we are taking a different approach this year. Each track is led by a Percona engineer or manager in the role of “Track Champion”, and they each are establishing a Track Steering Committee to review the submissions for that one track.

There are many benefits to this approach. First of all, it means that folk with in-depth knowledge of a technology review a smaller number of …

My 2019 Database Wishlist

Last year I published my 2018 Database Wishlist, which I recently revisited to check what happened and what didn’t. Time for a 2019 wishlist.

I am not going to list items from my 2018 list, even if they didn’t happen or they partially happened. Not because I changed my mind about their importance. Just because I wrote about them recently, and I don’t want to be more boring than I usually am.

External languages for MySQL and MariaDB

MariaDB 10.3 implemented a parser for PL/SQL stored procedures. This could be good for their business, as it facilitates the migration from Oracle. But …

Reference Architecture(s) for High Availability Solutions in Geographic Distributed Scenarios: Why Should I Care?

In this series of blog posts, I’m going to look at some high availability reference architecture solutions over geographically distributed areas.

The Problem

Nowadays, when businesses plan a new service or application, it is very common for them to worry about ensuring a very high level of availability. 

It doesn’t matter if we are talking about an online shop, online banking or the internal services of a large organization. We know users are going to expect access to services 24x7x365. They also expect to access data consistently and instantaneously. If we fail to meet their expectations, then they move to another provider and we lose money. Simple as that.

The other important aspect of providing online …
