MySQL Fabric a big hit at Texas Linuxfest


MySQL was proud to return as a sponsor of the Texas Linuxfest last weekend. Over 700 tickets sold and I probably talked to all bu two or three. Luckily I had help from Quality Assurance Guru Jeb Miller and Software Release Manager Hema Sridharan as things got very busy. The crowd was really supportive of us, MySQL, and extremely friendly.

MySQL Fabric was a popular topic of discussion. Evidently playing ‘who has the virtual IP address’ is a big problem for DevOps staffs and Fabric solves that issue. Many in attendance were on the verge of needing to shard their data and liked having a tool to manage the work for them.

And Workbench 6.1 is extremely popular. Me, “Have you seen the latest MySQL Workbench in action?” Attendee, “Yes, I use it all the time and ti has really become awesome in the last year!” Many non-DBAs who have to look after MySQL instances love the admin tools over fat finger on the command line.

So next June plan to be in Austin to see the bats come out at midnight, hear some great music on 6th Street, eat yourself silly on South Congress, and attend the best Open Source event in the Lone Star State.
