Author of High Performance MySQL and DB Solid State Storage by Fusion-IO

Hello everyone:

If you are not a member signup at: http://www.meetup.com...

Date: 7/28/2010
Time: 4:15PM to 6:00PM
Location: Dulles South Safety Center at South Riding (off of Route 50 and Loundoun County Parkway) community room.

Here is the speaker's bio and abstract from Fusion-io. Sumeet Bansal
Sumeet Bansal is Principal Solutions Architect for Fusion-io. He designs architectural solutions with Fusion-io products that deliver unprecedented levels of scalability, performance and simplicity. Sumeet has more than 11 years IT and database-infrastructure experience, including work as vice-president of information technology at MS SQL-based Internet retailer Wine.com, senior database architect for MS SQL-based eVineyard inc., and systems analyst for Akiba Bank Limited.

Here is the abstract for the presentation:

Solid-state technologies are changing the way that MS SQL Server users think about running their databases. Database administrators are discovering that the TCO savings associated with radical performance enhancements, reliability improvements and reduced energy and real estate costs of solid-state technologies are leading to changes in the way their datacenters look and how their MS SQL Servers perform. This session will address: 1) How I/O bottlenecks impact database performance and make life hard for DBAs

2) How conventional solutions fail to address this problem effectively

3) An overview of the different types of NAND Flash-based products and the advantages and disadvantages of each:

a. Disk-based SSDs

b. Onboard/Embedded PCI Express devices

c. Host-based PCI Express devices

4) How NAND Flash products enable new architectures that deliver ultra-low latency, improve reliability, and shrink infrastructure

5) An example of how e-Retailer Wine.com implemented NAND Flash solid state to successfully eliminate performance problems.

Please mark your calendars and be sure to attend the meeting to learn an in-depth Performance and Tuning, migration issues.

    It was nice to get out and meet some very nice folks. Some of the topics were over my head, but every little bit extra helps. Thanks again Jagan for pulling this together. When is the next meeting?

    Both the speakers and topics were really top of the line. Interesting discussion on common myths in MySQL performance and tuning, MySQL future strategies and percona. The discussion on High Performance MySQL was highly relevant to DBA's and database architect's daily life. Common myths in tuning the engine and server were addressed. For example using the public domain tools in tuning the instance is not the best method as most of the time the results of them is typically wrong.
    Fusion-IO is a technology delivery company. Many companies around the world are using and supporting Fusion-IO. The speaker Sumeet is very knowledgeable and went to many aspects of storage bottlenecks for Database administration. Configurations that can deliver upto 100,000 IOPS at easily affordable rack space and energy costs were discussed. This is the technology that is required after using all the means to tune the instance, engine, application but still need higher throughput.
    Thanks to both speakers.

    Thanks to both presenters! I was especially interested in the high performance mysql discussion, and I'm not enthusiastic about 'webex'-style presentations. I agree with the other commenter that one topic would have been a better focused meeting.

    Jagan-thanks for organizing. Thanks to Baron and Sumeet for their presentations, sorry I couldn't stay to the end. My suggestion for next time would be to stick to one topic. I think we could have kept Baron going with q&a the rest of the time. Well done Baron, thanks again!
