MySQL Conference 2010 – Last day

The morning’s keynotes again were quite good especially the one from Ubunto. I attend another packed Facebook session and one from Ronald Bradford. It was the first time I head him speak and he is very good. I didn’t attend many of the afternoon events because of customer commitments but the remain group at the hotel had a passionate discussion on Oracle role in the MySQL community so its far from over and Oracle has one year to fix it. See you all next year

MySQL 2010 Conference – Day 2

We started with the morning keynotes again today and I was a little surprised at the snipping going on. The first session that I attended today were around MySQL partitioning in the beta releases and beyond. The next set of sessions were on IO bottlenecks, MySQL data warehousing and finally Danil’s Security session. Finally there was the Ignite session that just finished a few minutes ago which was quite entertaining with lots of nice rapid fire topics. That’s all for today…Last day tomorrow

MySQL Conference 2010 – Day 1

Well the first day has come and gone and I really enjoyed my first day as a newbie. The keynote from Oracle was well received, they touched on the new Beta version of MySQL and the new mysql enterprise which to a trained oracle eye is looking more and more like Grid Control. The end result is providing more instrumentation to help the DBA but I am a little disappointed that a lot of that instrumentation is not actually in the database itself which forces you to buy the product.

Liveblogging: Edward Screven State of the Dolphin Keynote

Oracle invested heavily in open source even before the acquisition. Linux (Oracle Unbreakable Linux = Oracle Enterprise Linux = OEL). Clustering, data integrity, storage validation, asynchronous I/O, virtualiation technology that has been accepted back into the Linux kernel. They have enhanced Xen, in order to make a good Oracle VM server for x86. With Sun, they now have VirtualBox. In the 3 years of OEL, they have over 4,500 companies.

Gearing Up for MySQLConf 2010

I’m looking forward to traveling to San Jose for this year’s MySQL Conference. If there’s anything that can trump the drama of conf two years ago, where we observed how Sun would handle its new property, and then the drama of last year, where we observed how Oracle would handle the pending acquisition, it’s going to be the drama around this one — the first MySQLConf since the Oracle/Sun merger has been finalized and approved.

Meet the First Oracle ACE Director in MySQL — Sheeri Cabral

I’m excited to share the news that Oracle ACE program has been extended to cover MySQL community now and Pythian’s Sheeri Cabral has become the very first Oracle ACE Director in MySQL expertize area. It’s a special privilege for me to blog about it because I had a pleasure to nominate Sheeri in the first place. Being an Oracle ACE Director myself and knowing what’s involved, I believed that if Oracle ACE program is extended to MySQL, Sheeri must be the number one candidate.
