MariaDB has a lot of improvements to the core optimiser that powers both MySQL & MariaDB. These optimiser features all have flags which you can enable (they are disabled by default). Igor and Sergey both work on all these optimiser features on a daily basis, and will be able to go deep in-depth to explain them and why they are beneficial to end-users in general. Read more.

In the midst of many attempts to "solve" the RDBMS high availability problems, the vast majority of Yahoo sites are still using plain old boring MySQL replication to accomplish HA. This talk will cover the principles of this architecture, it's advantages and disadvantages, as well what we see as needed for future HA advances. It's old-school, it's crude, but somehow it solves most HA problems. Read more.

We present innovative technology developed to achieve industry-leading availability coupled with industry-leading performance for MySQL/InnoDB. Downtime is reduced by over 90% with tightly integrated, fully synchronous replication. Highly-optimized thread, lock, DRAM, and flash algorithms maximize performance.We present the technology, demonstrate management simplicity, and show benchmark results. Read more.

In this session, I will talk about tough DBA tasks - how to automate failover under non-trivial crash situations (i.e. promoting one of slaves to new master), and about how to eliminate downtime for difficult maintenance tasks (i.e sharding). If you have spent too much time for these tasks, this session will help your DBA life easier. Read more.

While MySQL and MongoDB often fight over the same deployment, there are many cases where MySQL and MongoDB should be used in conjunction. They each excel at different things, so its important to understand when to use one or the other, and how to make them work well together. Eliot Horowitz is the CTO and Co-Founder of 10gen, the creators of MongoDB Read more.

Apache CouchDB implements a reliable storage engine, webserver, and HTTP application server environment, in under 20k lines of Erlang and JavaScript source code (with an additional X lines of test code.) I'll show 3 related examples that strike at the core of CouchDB's simplicity: The storage engine, the incremental map reduce views, and replication. Read more.

At Twitter, we have gone through many iterations of storage systems as we have coped with tremendous growth. We have been able to solve many general distributed storage problems in a framework named Gizzard. This has allowed us to quickly and safely develop specialized components for the parts of Twitter that can no longer handle the scale at which they are required to operate. Read more.

Google engineers have built a system that detects MySQL master failure, chooses a new master, promotes it and hooks up slaves with under a minute downtime. This is deployed in an environment where there's zero tolerance for transaction loss of any sort. The original designer and a sysadmin who worked on the deployment will talk about design, implementation and practical lessons learned. Read more.
