MySQL and Drizzle were never designed to handle BLOBs efficiently, storing BLOBs in the database results in huge memory requirements and bloated backups and replication logs. The PrimeBase BLOB management system (PBMS) is a daemon that is loaded by the database server and provides an efficient way of handling BLOBs that doesn’t have these problems.
This will mostly be a non-technical session where I will contrast the PBMS solution for BLOB management with a couple of the current standard methods. I will also cover the following topics as they relate to BLOBs:
Barry Leslie is a core developer of the PrimeBase BLOB Streaming engine and cofounder of SNAP Innovation GmbH, Germany, where he is a senior developer in core technology. He has 20 years of software development experience. Barry has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Victoria and a Bachelor of Technology in Industrial Engineering from Ryerson University Toronto.
