Location: C121/122

Ever wondered what would happen if you could rethink a decade worth of design changes? Drizzle is a redesign of the MySQL server targeted at web development and optimized for Cloud applications. Update yourself on the latest features, and use cases for Drizzle7 and what is in store for the near future.

Drizzle BOF Session

Moderated by: Brian Aker
Location: D135

Drizzle started life as a fork of MySQL which is optimised for web and cloud usage. Two years is a long time and there have been many changes which have meant it has deviated from MySQL in many ways. This talk will help any new user with a little MySQL experience get to grips with Drizzle from both a DBA and application developer prospective.

If you are interested in using Drizzle, or if you already use Drizzle and would like to talk with some of the core developers this is the place to do it.

Dropping ACID: Eating Data in a Web 2.0 Cloud World

Stewart Smith (Percona)
Location: D139/140

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. This is part survey, part critique of the various Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation and Durability models available from various modern databases and data stores used in modern Web and Cloud environments. We’ll not just look at the single machine solution but how these systems work in a distributed environment. We’ll cover what happens when N of your M machines running $software goes away.

Big Data; Small Problems (And a Tale of Two Sequels)

Tim Anglade (Cloudant)
Location: Portland 255

As investment activity has gone up and attention has become more acutely focused on data management problems, the Database/SQL/NOSQL/NewSQL space has become progressively more heated & confusing. Nowadays, it can be mighty hard to even get a good technical sense of what those solutions are capable of, under all the marketing cruft & flamewars.
