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.
