Leaving Yahoo!; storage, consulting

As many of you know already, I’ve decided to leave Yahoo!. Today was my last day. I’ve had a great time at Yahoo! and worked with a bunch of brilliant people. I will miss you all!


Where am I headed? That’s actually a complicated question. I’ll be working part time at Pivot3, a mature startup that’s doing great things in the storage industry. Contact me if you’re interesting in cutting storage costs, getting some amazing management tools, and some awesome performance. I would love to tell you more! MySQL will absolutely rock on this platform.

Yes, I said part time. I have a startup of my own, Proven Scaling, providing advanced MySQL consulting and training services. Looking to get more performance, scalability, or reliability out of MySQL? Need help with replication? Designing a database solution that really scales? Need help interviewing a candidate for a MySQL position? We can help.

    I really admire you’re initiative to do your own startup. I wish you all the best with it, and I’m looking forward to see your blog anouncing the first million you make with it.
