Another interesting day today, I was attending the keynotes and I have found them quite interesting. Specially the way Tweeter use MySQL to build-up a nosql solution, jokes a side I take few notes on things I must analyze and dig in. Interesting one was also the introduction of the Paypal models, which brings me to attend the presentation later on. Presentation was well constructed and with some good theoretical work, but I was quite disappointed, I found the presentation incomplete, and missing real numbers for the MySQL Cluster NDB setup.
Tonight at Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison announced the latest Exadata release: X3. It sports a hardware refresh including a big expansion in RAM and flash storage capacity: 4TB and 22TB respectively on a full rack. Read my thoughts on this here.

It is exciting to be here, meeting again old friends and ex colleagues, but also exciting for what seems the start of a very significant conference fro MySQL. I really enjoy the introductions done from Edward Screven and Thomas Ulin. Edward highlight the fact that MySQL is increasing his presence in the market and in the community. This could be also thanks to the unbelievable effort done by Oracle in keeping his production cycle on target.
