We’re supporting the OpenSQL Camp, which will be held in Portland on
One of my objectives for the camp is to make progress on a
universal storage engine API, to make it possible to use the same
storage engines in MySQL, PostgreSQL, Ingres, or any other
database. I’m also looking forward to hearing other
people’s great ideas.
After OpenSQLcamp, I’ll be attending Supercomputing’09.
Supercomputing and database hardware technology seems to be
converging. Many of the fastest databases today look like a
supercomputer with disks attached. Will there be other
kinds of convergence? For example, what kind of convergence
will we see between multicore computing and cluster
computing? Today we program multicore machines very
differently from clusters. I think in the future that
difference will vanish.
