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
Feel free to ask questions and give comments.
Next Friday (31st of May) the second MySQL Meetup User Group NL of this year will be hosted by Snow IT in Geldermalsen. It is great to see that various companies are hosting the meetup and that the diversity and number of people attending is increasing. In total three presentations will be given:
- Choosing the Best Sharding Policy – Doran Levari (ScaleBase, using a video link)
- Performance Monitoring with Statsd and Graphite – Art van Scheppingen (Spil Games)
- Basic MySQL performance tuning for sysadmins – Daniël van Eeden (Snow)
Our presentation will be a condensed version of the MySQL Performance Monitoring using Graphite and Statsd presentation that I gave at the Percona Live MySQL Conference in Santa Clara. The main difference is that I’m not getting into the details why we decided to use Graphite but it will only focus on the implementation itself.
Hope to see you next Friday!
