• Using the MariaDB CONNECT Engine to Merge Heterogeneous Data Sources

    I was reminded recently of a project I did during a DevDays week at WebAssign in 2014. The engineering department wanted to move a large dataset into MongoDB, and my DevDays experiment was to demonstrate the Tungsten Replicator’s role in translating data from MySQL to MongoDB. It worked handily, but was ultimately not implemented because the development teams got bogged down in the Tungsten replication filters desired for data transformation.
  • M|17 MariaDB Conference 2017

    Quite excited about this new MySQL ecosystem conference, this one specifically about the primary fork of MySQL, MariaDB. (Or you may think of it as the original MySQL, pre-Oracle fork.) Equally excited it’s on the East Coast.
