Drizzle is a fork of MySQL, with a focus on Cloud Computing and Scalability. Since 16 core machines are about to be what we run as laptops, hyper-scalability is a concern both at the micro, or intra-machine level as well as the macro or inter-machine level. We’re approaching both in Drizzle using current best-of-breed technologies – while not throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
We’ll overview where we’re at, where we’re going, what we’re doing and why it’s must-know information for anybody doing large-scale web deployments.
Monty Taylor is an Engineer for Sun. He’s currently hacking on Drizzle full time, and was the crazy guy who wrote the NDB/Bindings in the first place (why write for one language when you can have six?) Before that, he was a Senior Consultant for MySQL which took him all over the word focusing on Cluster and High Availability.
He’s a Python programmer by first choice(and yet hears the obvious joke surprisingly infrequently) but seems to be spending all of his time recently in C, C++ and Java.
