We have the CTO of SkySQL (and MariaDB/Monty Program) Ivan Zoratti as our guest speaker for January who will be presenting on "Introducing MaxScale, the new proxy for MySQL."
MaxScale is a lightweight, modular proxy that provides new features for MySQL, such as database-specific load balancing, monitoring, connection and statement based routing. MaxScale is the missing piece in the MySQL ecosystem to provide NoSQL features with MySQL consistency, availability and robustness.
Ivan is CTO at SkySQL Ab, where he also leads the engineering team and he is responsible for the vision and evolution of new database solutions and services. Prior to that, Ivan worked at MySQL AB / Sun / Oracle for 6 years. An IT veteran close to 30 years of experience, he has been founder and CTO of various companies, journalist and author of technical books and publications.
