…lot of Sun hardware and Solaris focused talks this year. It is the first year that the Drizzle project participates in the conference. Percona runs Percona Performance Conference as a free event going concurrently with the conference and announced Percona XtraDB as improved and extended Innodb Plugin version, MySQL 5.1 is FA with 5.1.34 and MySQL 5.4.0 is in a nonGA version. The MySQL Enterprise model is changed... now MySQL Community versions are released monthly and Enterprise…
Back in 2009, I finished what seemed an epic task in the Drizzle code base: banishing the FRM file. Why? We felt it was not a good idea to keep arbitrary and obscure limitations from the 1980s alive in the 21st century and instead wanted a modular system where the storage engines themselves owned their own metadata. This was a radical departure from the MySQL philosophy, and one that has truly paid off in the Drizzle code base. However... for those using MySQL, Percona Server, MariaDB…
By mid summer we will see production releases of fully async libdrizzle driver (talks to & Drizzle) which we could adopt to future proof our applications. Combine all three with a fibered ActiveRecord driver, an async application server such as Thin, and we …3, Ruby 1.9, and Drizzle, and that convergence is worth paying attention to. Both Rails 3 and Ruby 1.9 offer raw performance improvements across the board. In the meantime, Drizzle already provides a
…There is no one clear winner for a database engine or model, so put some thought into your decision up front. Just because Mongo, TC, or Couch are 'document-oriented' or 'schema-free' does not mean they are necessarily better for your application. In the meantime, don't get me wrong, I am still rooting for all the NoSQL projects, as well as have high expectations for Drizzle - they are all doing fantastic work.
The paper describes each system and then compares them on the dimensions of Concurrency Control, Data Storage Replication, Transaction Model, General Comments, Maturity, K-hits, License Language.
And the winner is: there are no winners. Yet. Rick concludes by pointing to a great convergence:
I believe that a few of these systems will gain critical mass and key players, and will pull

…simple, lightweight, fast database?" And then you saw people going off and starting to work on Drizzle and those sorts of things.
How do you balance that request for one more thing versus wanting not to lose sight of what you set out to build and the scenarios that you really wanted to nail?
Eliot: I think it comes down to a few key things. One is making sure that we don't regress on performance, which is one thing we're very careful about. We constantly monitor our performance …

No improvement like this is complete without benchmarks. My benchmarks ("mysqlslap -q ‘select 1;' -number-of-queries=1000000 -concurrency=64″ on my laptop) come out at the following:
straight MySQL (no slow query log): 13 seconds
MySQL with slow query log enabled: 18 seconds
My audit plugin slow query log: 15 seconds
straight Drizzle (no slow query log): 8 seconds
So that's a quite promising start.
