Slides from “MariaDB: A MySQL Replacement?”

Monday evening, Max Mether from SkySQL came to the Boston MySQL User Group and presented “MariaDB: A MySQL Replacement?” We did take video and will link to it when it’s uploaded. That usually takes a while, so I figured I would link to the PDF slides, which Max has graciously shared.

Note that on slide 26, “All highly speculative” is a bit misleading when taken out of context. We know that MariaDB is working on all those things (including a Cassandra storage engine and Multi-source replication) because their worklogs and bug tracking system are 100% open, so that’s not the “highly speculative” part. We just do not know if they will be in the next production release of MariaDB.

    there is no need to post slides ahead of video availability, this isn’t time-critical information, it will be just as valid if posted next week.

    but this way, you force those that _are_ interested in video to keep this page bookmarked/open in a tab, and keep refreshing it until you update with video.

    not cool..

      Tom – Sorry for the confusion – I will post another blog entry when the video is up. Our video engineer just finished the March video, so it could be months. And I had a few folks who asked about the slides, so I wanted to post them as soon as I could.

      The post with the video will have a link to the slides as well, so there’s no need to keep refreshing this post. I apologize for the miscommunication.
