MySQL's NoSQL -- Best of Both Worlds on One Set of Disks
This presentation covers the use of the NoSQL access to InnoDB data engines via the memcached protocol. Bypassing the SQL parser and optimizer is 9x faster! This allows applications to 'drink from the fire hose' at over 1,000,000 access a second. This approach is easy to set up, can be secured easily, stores data as a key/value pair while allowing SIMULTANEOUS access through SQL, and provides for a crash safe persistent cache. If you are looking for a quick, painless entry into the world of big data or need very high speed access to your data, come to this!
Learn the history and how this approach developed from Handlersocket. See how easy it is to impletment (load one shared object library and run a script to set up tables), and how to access yoru data via memcached. And finally see how to apply this to an exisitng dataset.
