The B in LAMP

At the core of data infrastructure, a basic function is for information and to be stored and retrieved. In the world of open source, the core data manager is often Berkeley DB, a freely available open source product with more than 200 million deployments. Berkeley DB ships with all components in a LAMP stack, including Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP, Python, and Perl. Attendees will learn what Berkeley DB is, what is does, how it is used by each of the LAMP components, and how LAMP developers can exploit the power of this database that ships with LAMP stack.

Berkeley DB is a non-relational database and provides an alternative to storing all the data in MySQL SQL tables. It also serves as an underlying data manager under MySQL's SQL layer. Learn the difference between SQL and non-relational data and when it might be appropriate to store certain types of data directly in Berkeley DB.
