Speaking about MySQL UG NL Meetups – during the Q1 Meetup in February (hosted by Spil Games) one of our DBAs gave a presentation on database TCO (Total Cost of Ownership). We would like to share it here.
Apart from covering the topic of determining database maintenance costs the presentation included some ideas on possible improvements as well as findings of our own small case study. The slides can be found here: http://spil.com/databasetco
