Here are slides for my presentations at the MySQL Conference as well as the parallel Percona Performance is Everything Conference. Thanks to everyone to attended as well as to the organizers. You had wonderful ideas and suggestions.
- 1-Click Data Availability in the Cloud - Tungsten & RightScale
- Database Performance with Proxy Architectures: Tungten SQL Router
- Tungsten Advanced Master/Slave Replication: A Gentle Tutorial
Finally, some short impressions on the conference. The two most intriguing trends were advances in hardware, especially memory and SSDs, as well as clouds. These are altering the economics of computer in fundamental ways: business costs as well as performance trade-offs in many of the basic algorithms for data management. Combined with the ferment of projects spinning off from MySQL and others, they are fueling an incredible burst of creative thinking about databases.
By comparison, Oracle consuming Sun is merely interesting.
