We're pleased to have Giuseppe Maxia, MySQL Community Team Lead at Sun Microsystems, speak with us at this very special FREE event, hosted at Sun Microsystem's offices.

Boosting performance with partitions in MySQL 5.1 and 5.5

Partitions divide up large data sets to increase performance and minimize disk and other bottlenecks. In this talk, Giuseppe will look at the general concepts around partitioning, how they apply to MySQL, and how to utilize these valuable features in MySQL 5.1 and MySQL 5.4 for improving performance and scalability.

Dubai MySQL is here to help build and support the technical communities in Dubai and we look forward to working with other groups in the area.

If you have work to be done, or you are looking for work, this is a great chance to meet and network with others in Dubai and become a part of the community.

We're also looking for future presentations and co-organizers - it's not a lot of work and a great way to get visibility, get involved and meet others.
