An overview of MySQL forks and alternative Storage Engines


Note: Registration will open on May 30, 2013 Thursday 6:30pm

Over the past few years, the MySQL open source ecosystem has seen a growing number of MySQL forks and alternative storage engines gain attention. These technologies aim to solve problems and optimize solutions that may not be fully addressed by the main MySQL project. Ronald will help educate us on what these options are, some historical perspective, their state of maturity/stability and when and why one might want to use them. A list of some of the technologies covered includes the MySQL software including Oracle MySQL, MariaDB, Percona Server, Drizzle and Galera. Storage engines including XtraDB, TokuDB, Aria, PBXT, Infobright, and additional supporting options like tungsten replicator. These solutions all aim to provide some additional benefit, whether these are to enhance performance for various use cases, improve replication and clustering, or add features to native MySQL.

      I thought that was those blockheads in Redmond?

      I'm The Enterprise and Oracle tends to be recalcitrant even there, by modern standards. Once tried to shift from RHEL to OEL enterprise-wide but it turns out Oracle's faustian bargain is no better than Red Hat's. We switched to Ubuntu because of the repos (shared with Debian), release cycle, and potential for first-party commercial support in the future if desired.

    Superb presentation and exactly what it said on the tin.

    Ronald's presentation was great. I'm more of a front-end developer --- not an admin --- so, as a result, rarely have much to do with DB decisions. Regardless, the presentation really helped clear up a lot of longstanding confusion on the myriad of MySQL choices available. Not sure about everyone else, but I really do enjoy getting the perspective of history, which Ronald presented in a lucid manner --- reminded me a bit of Theodore Ts'o's "ext4" talk earlier in the year.

    Would love to hear a talk on how Facebook scales (Google, although they moved to F1) MySQL

    • Ronald B.

      Facebook often provides very good detailed presentations. I suggest you look at some of the recent Percona Live events for slides and video.
