The next keynote is from Marten Mickos, now with Eucalyptus systems, previously CEO of MySQL AB. He’s talking about making LAMP a Cloud. No surprises there, Eucalyptus is the leading open-source cloud computing platforms for on-premise use.
Here it is finally – the MySQL conference 2012 starts with the Keynote Sessions. The first keynote speech is by Peter Zaitsev, founder of Percona and a very smart guy and also by Baron Schwartz (Percona), another very smart guy, the brains behind a number of toolkits for MySQL.
A very well attended Pedro’s dinner – I didn’t count, but we had 9 tables of 8-10 people or so – dare I say almost a 100 people? Lots of beer, margaritas and good conversations! Here are a few pictures from the event

A new trial version of DBD::Oracle is on CPAN. The meat of this release is the awesome work Martin Evans did in the murky core of the beast. He explains it better, but basically his magic results in a much faster DBD::Oracle on thread-enabled perls. This being said, the changes he did are significant (2.3K lines changed according to Git), and we would be very grateful of anybody finding the time to try and install that trial version before it goes live
It’s that time of the year again…. Collaborate time: the world’s only user-driven, user-run Oracle conference. From April 22 to 26th, thousands of Oracle professionals are heading to Las Vegas for a week’s worth of presentations, education sessions, networking opportunities and who knows what else (it’s Vegas, after all!).

Weathers are changing, clocks are being adjusted too, and the changes at the technological fronts are as usual rapid, frequent and over-whelming.

In my previous post I described how to install Oracle VM and Oracle VM Manager on the same sandbox. However, to start playing with Oracle VM v3 you need to configure some storage to be used for new VM hosts. The problem is that Oracle states that you should allocate a full HDD for VM host storage. If you have just one HDD in your system then you are in trouble, as part of it is already occupied by the Dom0 host.
