This is great news!

From what I gather, from Monty's blog post (and a 1:1 we had some time back), this is something done by a partner/external company that has a mostly OSS solution, that we should integrate into 10.1

That said, Google's release of something that works for InnoDB, Aria, binlogs, temp files (and presumably not too hard to add for MyISAM) is something we should definitely review and target for 10.1

Is there more coming out in a few weeks, i.e. another big Google patch planned? Or just this feature? I think it'd be great to coordinate, and get this into Jira, as these are great tasks for 10.1 and will be a positive differentiator going forward

Thanks again for the wonderful news
