Open Source Database Community Blog: The Story So Far

Recently, we initiated a new project, the Open Source Database Community Blog. One way to think of this is as an online, year round version of the Percona Live conferences. If you have a story to tell, an experience to share, or a lesson to be learned send it along. As long as it’s related to open source database software, their management and application. That’s right. Not just Percona software. Any open source database software of all formats.

Unlike Percona Live, though, we are not limited by time or space. All submissions are welcome as long as they follow some simple guidelines.

We have already had some excellent posts, and in case this is news to you, here’s a recap:

Technical considerations

Are they syntactically similar? Where do these two databases differ? Why would I use one over the other?

MariaDB 10.3 is on the path of gradually diverging from MySQL 8.0. One obvious example is the internal data dictionary currently under development for MySQL 8.0. This is a major change to the way metadata is stored and used within the server, and MariaDB doesn’t have an equivalent feature. Implementing this feature could mark the end of datafile-level compatibility between …

Porting this Oracle MySQL feature to MariaDB would be great ;-)

Oracle has done a great technical work with MySQL. Specifically a nice job has been done around security. There is one useful feature that exists in Oracle MySQL and that currently does not exist in MariaDB. Oracle MySQL offers the possibility from within the server to generate asymetric key pairs. It is then possible use [...]

The connection_control plugin : Keeping brute force attack in check

To quote book of all knowledge:

In cryptography, a brute-force attack consists of an attacker trying many
passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing correctly.
The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases
until the correct one is found.

Conference review Percona Live Santa Clara 2018

Percona Live Santa Clara, an annual event where open source database users, developers and enthusiasts come together, was held in April at the Santa-Clara convention centre. Pythian was well represented once more with no less than five presentations and a total of nine attendees.

This year the conference was condensed to two days of breakout sessions and one day of tutorials. Though it was shorter in length, the organizers broadened their horizons by including not only MySQL and MongoDB tracks, but this year they even put together a full PostgreSQL track. Moving from MySQL only to multiple technologies, inspired this year’s tagline: polyglot persistence conference. The increase in number of sessions allowed for a lot more options, but the condensed schedule made it much harder to choose which sessions to attend!

My observation from last year’s …
