Re: Storage Engine Summit 2010


Hi Sergei,

How are we planning to co-ordinate this with Drizzle Day? There are also people from Drizzle who should attend the Engine Summit. And I would actually like to attend both events.

Is there a kind of Summit/Drizzle track that I could follow?

Although I am interested in what's happening in general, I can narrow the most important topics for me down to the following:

- Engine API
  * The big question: where should it be going?
  * Here we need to take a close look at what Drizzle has done
- Online backup and restore
  * When can we expect this in both Drizzle and MariaDB?
  * Will we use the MySQL API for this?
  * We need a better way to start replication than mysqldump
- Replication
  * What's happening, what are the plans, etc.
- Engine specific extensions
  * Whatever we do, can it be the same for Drizzle and MariaDB?
- BLOB handling
  * REST interface to Drizzle/MariaDB

Best regards,


BTW: Will anybody from Oracle be attending any of these events? Maybe in a non-official capacity.

Hi, all!

We are happy to announce the *Storage Engine Summit* 2010.

This traditional one-day meeting of Storage Engine vendors/authors takes
place yearly right after the User Conference.

This year it will be held on Friday, April 16h.

Invited are all MySQL/MariaDB Storage Engine vendors and anyone
interested in the MySQL/MariaDB Storage Engine API. Please register in
advance, the space is limited.

We will talk about new developments in the area of the MySQL/MariaDB
Storage Engine API - what was implemented recently, what we are working
on - and about new directions of the development, what needs to be
implemented to make the life of Storage Engine authors easier.

See http://askmonty.org/wiki/Storage_Engine_Summit_2010 for details.
