Percona Live happens on February 16 2011, in San Francisco. From 11:30-11:55, we will have our very own Igor Babaev to give a talk titled The State of MariaDB in where he will cover the new features in MariaDB 5.2, and a little bit about looking forward.
Percona Server offers a range of performance and diagnostic enhancements, and MariaDB is adding more features with the help of the community.
Based on small talk with Stefan Idler and Jakob Schröter at OpenRheinRuhr2010, Kajona CMS now officially works with MariaDB. They tested MariaDB and verified that it was a drop-in-replacement for MySQL without any modifications needed on their side. We are of course happy to hear about all real-life success stories!
You can find more about Kajona here.
As a company we definitely plan to have a few employees attend and speak about all the things we’ve been working on in MariaDB. Will you be there? Go fill out the attendee list.
We’re all very excited at the first Open Database Camp (with a similar OpenSQLCamp format) and are especially excited for it being hosted in the beautiful island of Sardinia.
SpamExperts has their own anti-spam filtering cloud which is provided as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. In addition they have an e-mail security product which they install, update and monitor on-site. Most of SpamExperts’ anti-spam technology has been developed in-house and makes extensive use of the MySQL database. All clients contribute in real-time to their filtering effectiveness, so they have many different data flows that are handled by MySQL. Replication is used to synchronize the data between the systems in a cluster and to push data feeds in real-time. The SaaS cloud is replicated across four countries for redundancy, whereas client installations spread the data retrieval around the globe.
As Hakan mentioned previously, the full text of SQL-99 Complete, Really by Peter Gulutzan and Trudy Pelzer, is now in the AskMonty.org Knowledgebase. Importing the text and formatting it for the Knowledgebase was a major project and I’m glad that it’s done.
Having the full text of this book freely available is a great thing for anyone who uses SQL because the book is about the SQL-99 standard and not about any particular database implementation. They do talk about different implementations, but those sections are clearly marked as such, and serve as examples of how some databases implement (or diverge from) the standard.
Thanks to our technical writer and system administrator at Monty Program Ab Daniel Bartholomew we now have a complete description of the SQL-99 standard for syntax, data structures, and retrieval processes of SQL databases. As an example-based reference manual it includes all of the CLI functions, information, schema tables, and status codes.
Please make sure to check out our commenting system. You can add your comments for every section of the book. …
New Year is coming! And it brings us a new MySQL User Conference! As always, me and my colleagues will be attending — we have great talks to offer:
- Monty is giving a keynote State of MariaDB. Just like the last year, Monty will tell you how we are doing, what we have spent the last year on, what we are working on now.
- Colin presents A Beginner’s Guide to MariaDB talk. If you have heard of MariaDB, but don’t quite know what it is and why you should care — go and attend his talk.
