Big Data miss from the Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal’s Heard on the Street column this morning was oddly titled Oracle’s Little Issue With Big Data. The point of the article is that data is exploding but the WSJ does not see how Oracle is going to take advantage of that explosion. But I found it odd that WSJ has missed the point!

Percona welcomes Drizzle 7.1

The Drizzle team has published the first Drizzle 7.1 stable release. The announcement on the Drizzle blog covers some of the major improvements in this release over the previous stable release, Drizzle 7.0. I plan to write a variety of blog posts on each of the new features over the coming weeks. Major features include:

Percona Announces New Relic Partnership

I’m delighted to announce a partnership with New Relic. The press release has the details (all new Gold and Platinum support contracts get free New Relic subscriptions) but I wanted to add some of the behind-the-scenes context.

Automated, integrated sharding — the new killer database feature

MySQL became wildly successful in part because it had built-in, simple replication. Sure, it had lots of interesting failure scenarios and was not great at first — it is much better these days — but it was nevertheless successful because there was a single, out-of-the-box, not-very-complex way to do replication. I have opined many times before that this was one of the killer features missing from PostgreSQL. I think that can large explain why MySQL became more popular more quickly.

How We Got Here

We have spent months planning and preparing for the MySQL conference that begins tomorrow. It seems appropriate to reflect on this process, where the open source and business communities are now, and what we have planned for the future.
