Clustrix will be presenting at this month’s Silicon Valley MySQL Meetup in Sunnyvale, CA. Stop by if you can!
Paul Mikesell (CEO and VP Engineering) and Aaron Passey (CTO) will be discussing the unique architecture behind Clustrix’s massively scalable, distributed, MySQL-compatible database solution. They will talk about how the company has addressed the common challenges associated with achieving massive scale for transactional (OLTP) relational workloads.
Prior to developing the Clustrix solution over the past four years, Paul was co-founder of Isilon Systems, just acquired by EMC in December 2010 for $2.25B and still has the largest clustering capability (>120 nodes) of any NAS solution.
The -1 on planetmysql wasn’t from me, although this could have used less about their past success and more about what they are doing now. AFAIK both of the people listed here are very technical and this should be an interesting meeting.
