Sponsoring OpenSQL Camp 2009

Posted On September 11, 2009 | By Bradley C. Kuszmaul | 2 comments

We’re supporting the OpenSQL Camp, which will be held in Portland on November 14.

One of my objectives for the camp is to make progress on a universal storage engine API, to make it possible to use the same storage engines in MySQL, PostgreSQL, Ingres, or any other database. I’m also looking forward to hearing other people’s great ideas.

After OpenSQLcamp, I’ll be attending Supercomputing’09. Supercomputing and database hardware technology seems to be converging. Many of the fastest databases today look like a supercomputer with disks attached. Will there be other kinds of convergence? For example, what kind of convergence will we see between multicore computing and cluster computing? Today we program multicore machines very differently from clusters. I think in the future that difference will vanish.

    Hi!

    Thank you very much for the support! A universal storage engine API is a very intriguing idea. I’m curious to see what the PostgreSQL folks have to say about this, since it’s a fairly different model (multi-process, not quite as pluggable).

    Also, I wanted to let you know the OpenSQL Camp link in the post is broken. :)

    See you there!
