Shard-Query is a middleware solution for sharding MySQL databases. It rewrites queries to execute them in parallel over multiple cores of a single machine, or even multiple cores on multiple machines.
Here is a link comparing Shard-Query to Amazon Redshift: http://shardquery.com/2013/07/11/comparing-amazon-redshift-and-shard-query-features-and-performance/

This will be a combined meetup with SF MySQL!
Special Note: bring a photo ID with you, as security will be checking for them. Thank you!
