Two years ago we rebooted MySQL from being a monolithic architecture to a modular database kernel. Now that Drizzle is starting to stabilize and more folks are using it, it is no longer just a developers projects. This session focuses on what everyday DBAs and developers need to know to take advantage of all of the features Drizzle has to offer. This will cover the most common features used, how to configure them, and how to manage the database for your applications.
Eric Day works on the Drizzle and Gearman projects. He has been writing high-performance, multi-threaded servers and databases for most of his career, always with an emphasis on efficiency and security. He has written complete HTTP/SSL, DNS, and IMAP implementations, along with designing and implementing custom storage and database systems. Most of his work has been done in clustered and distributed environments. When not hacking on code, he can be found running, biking, or enjoying a good vegan meal with his wife.
Monty Taylor is currently hacking on Drizzle full time, and was the crazy guy who wrote the NDB/Bindings in the first place (why write for one language when you can have six?) Before that, he was a Senior Consultant for MySQL which took him all over the word focusing on Cluster and High Availability.
He’s a Python programmer by first choice (and yet hears the obvious joke surprisingly infrequently) but seems to be spending all of his time recently in C, C++ and Java.
