Moving data between databases is hard. Without ever intending it, I seem to have spent a lifetime working on solutions for getting data into and out of databases, but more frequently between. In fact, my first job out of university was migrating data from BRS/Text, a free-text database (probably what we would call a NoSQL) into a more structured Oracle. Today I spend some of my time working in Big...

Like a lot of developers I started using a MacBook Pro around the time of Tiger. I instantly loved it: simple, fast, and virtually no system administration overhead. The genius of OS X was that it never got in the way. You opened the box, pulled out the machine, and got to work. It had a great user interface, excellent development tools (Eclipse in my case) and the command utilities like ssh, r...

Anders Karlsson wrote about Some myths on Open Source, the way I see it (http://karlssonondatabases.blogspot.com/2014/01/some-myths-on-open-source-way-i-see-it.html) a few days ago. Anders' article is mostly focused on exploding the idea that open source magically creates high quality code. It is sad to say you do not have to look very far to see how true this is. While I largely agree with Ande...

In the last 10 years I have worked a lot with replication systems, and I have developed a keen interest in the topic of multiple masters in a single cluster. My interest has a two distinct origins:On one hand, I have interacted countless times with users who want to use a replication system as a drop-in replacement for a single server. In many cases, especially when users are dealing with applicat...
