Storage engine conference sessions

2:00pm–3:00pm Tuesday, 04/12/2011
MariaDB - Community Developed. Feature Enhanced. Backward Compatible. A branch of the popular MySQL database, the project began in 2009 around a storage engine, but quickly evolved to being another database project, with two major releases in 2010. This session will introduce the project, and will help any DBA or developer get to grips with MariaDB.
2:00pm–2:45pm Thursday, 04/14/2011
Writing a complete plugin requires quite a bit of infrastructure work to get all the feature registration and build system aspects right. A code generator can take care of such tasks, allowing you to focus on the actual functionality you want to add without having to figure out all plugin API details up front. This can cut the time to create a simple plugin down from hours to minutes.
2:00pm–2:45pm Thursday, 04/14/2011

HailDB is a project that maintains InnoDB as a shared library (forked from embedded_innodb). It provides an API direct to InnoDB without any pesky SQL in front of it. This session is an introduction to HailDB, followed by an introduction to programming it.
11:55am–12:40pm Thursday, 04/14/2011
MySQL Cluster (NDB) is one of the most interesting storage engines. Oracle promotes NDB as the perfect solution for high volume transactions in high availability. On the other hand, many famous users are reluctant in migrating applications to NDB. This session will help in understanding in practical terms when it makes sense to use NDB and when it is better to stay with or use InnoDB.
10:50am–11:50am Thursday, 04/14/2011
InnoDB becomes the default storage engine in MySQL 5.5. At this session, you will learn the current state of InnoDB and the latest enhancements to the InnoDB storage engine in MySQL 5.5; plus how InnoDB works.
10:50am–11:50am Wednesday, 04/13/2011
Learn about the latest developments in and around the PBXT Storage Engine. Emphasis will be placed on technical aspects, discussing how things work, and giving practical examples. I will also present the latest performance results for PBXT which reveal a particular sweet spot when running a new benchmark called the “Provider Benchmark”.
5:15pm–6:00pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
Most of high scale web applications use memcached + MySQL or NoSQL. It is said that NoSQL performs better than MySQL for simple access patterns such as primary key lookups. But things are changing. DeNA recently developed HandlerSocket plugin, a MySQL plugin speaking NoSQL protocols. We got 750,000+ qps in our benchmarks and runs pretty well on our production. We'd like to share our experiences.
