MyVLDB

MySQL is getting three new storage engines that I find interesting:

  • Brightcove -- 10:1 compression for data warehouse datasets
  • Nitro -- storage tuned for the data-hyperfirehose of network event processing
  • Solid -- MVCC comes to MySQL
  • (+their new transactional/native engine that the firebird lead will be producing)

    In addition, the coming-soon option of being able to replicate in-memory-clusters to disk-based backends (a la Prevaylor) seems to give you a _lot_ of scaling options for a variety of workloads.

    I think all of the above are in slightly less-than-vapory stages, but since there seems to be a compelling case for database vendor also-rans to try to sell into the huge MySQL userbase, (how better to be acquired by Oracle? :-) ), I don't doubt we'll see some shipping soon.
